Miss Reba Reece and her late husband Al have been a part of our home and heart for many years when they stayed with us during visits with Al’s cousin and our neighbor, Don Walsh. Many aspects of our lives have shifted over the years but Reba’s and my friendship has remained steadfast and fun.
She is always ready for a get-together so her recent 97th birthday just screamed PARTY! Always the fashion statement, Reba decided her birthday deserved a new ‘do’ so we were happy to accommodate her and who doesn’t have a spare head – complete with mirror – just hanging around waiting to be needed? She was tickled pink and looked like a million!
And what party doesn’t need a band . . . what fun that LaToBo (short for LaDonna, Tomas, and Bonita who founded the band) got us all moving.
Her favorite carrot cake and strong coffee (a MUST in Miss Reba’s daily routine) along with balloons, party hats and visiting friends rounded out a rousing good time. Reba has asked to audition for the band and told them to ‘save the date 7/23’ for her 100th!
While the festivities didn’t happen in my home, all our hearts are always with Miss Reba so we wanted you to see how we celebrated.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO REBA . . . HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOOOOOUUUUUUUU . . . and many more!
