Kathleen's 80th Birthday Celebration

In May, Mom turned 80.

All eight of her children surprised her with a lunch.

We had 55 family members show up for her special day.

It was the first time all eight children had been together in more than a decade.

Take a moment to view a slideshow of photos over the years as well as a slideshow of her surprise party.
