This is a picture of my mother, Violet Coyle with many of the cards that she recieved from family, friends and SCS'rs for her 90th. birthday.
She received 150 cards. See how happy she looks?
Mom wants to thank everyone for the beautiful cards. It really made her day every time the mail came. Since I couldn't be there, this picture was taken by one of my sisters.....I cannot believe all those gorgeous homemade cards. Thank you everyone!

Kheila, I am so happy that your mom received so many cards and I was glad to help out:) She doesn't look close to being 90 years of age!!

I'm tearing up right now thinking of the most wonderful gift you mom received; love, for her birthday from many who didn't know her but wanted to do an act of kindness. I'm also in awe of the collection of gorgeous cards she received from such loving ladies here on SCS. It is us who have received a gift in sharing with others, like your mother. Thank you for giving us the opportunity.

Kheila, thank you for sharing your beautiful mom with each of us. What a blessing to see her smiling face! Ninety? C'mon...don't believe that for one moment! I'll bet she is as pretty on the inside too. Bless her heart! Thanks so much. HUgs....
