Madame Mamie Turns 100

A few months ago, I blogged about 3 of my friends over the age of 90, including Fred Hoshiyama and Grace Lee Boggs. Tarabu sent these pictures of his mom Mamie Kirkland's 100th birthday in Buffalo this summer. Mamie is a pretty remarkable woman, here are some pictures of her family at her 100th Bday celebration.

We look forward to Mamie's LA Bday later this year!

Jenni, nice pictures. Don and I are mourning the death of our friend Nat Zack who died last night. He lived his 90+ years as a true mensch.

So sorry about your friend, Fran. 90 years is a good chunk of time on this earth. Condolences to your friend and his family.
