Happy 90th Birthday, Ed Melzer!

Through the magic of Skype Amanda and I were able to congratulate Ed Melzer on turning 90 years old today! We are so grateful that he has been a part of our family for the past 12 years!

He was able to have his family celebrate with him last night at a restaurant where they showed slides and talked about the good old days. His three children and their families were there as well as my sisters, Annette and Joan. I was happy Brittany, John and Crystal were there to represent our family. We have had so many wonderful times with him. He and mom accompanied us to Peru, Bolivia, Mexico, Sweden, Denmark and Norway. He is a wonderful travel companion, because he is interested in everything and everybody. We were amazed that he drove all the way from Utah to Baltimore to visit us last year! He's not been feeling his normal chipper self this year, but we're hoping when he starts dancing again he'll be able to come visit us in Maryland. We're just praying that next time they'll chose to fly out!
