SURPRISE CARD SHOWER FOR GILBERT LARKIN
I received a request from Gilbert Larkin's daughter Mindi, and his son, Mark, asking for SURPRISE birthday cards/notes for Gilbert's 70th birthday. The actual day is not until September, but the kids want the cards sent to them for display at the family reunion on August 7th.

Quoting their request, “Will you please send us silly or nice memories about Gilbert (something he said or did). We plan to post them on the walls at the family reunion to share with others. We will also make Gilbert a Happy Birthday scrapbook, after the reunion. We can't wait to see the SURPRISED LOOK ON HIS FACE.

Their addresses are:
