email to my Sister

Topic: the last birthday card that Uncle Chris sent Grandma Lil

Question: do you remember the wording of the card?

I remember that it was a joke card with a crack inside about how old she was getting. I remember that she enjoyed complaining bitterly about it for weeks. I remember that she was plotting to get him a really insulting card for his next birthday and that he died before his next birthday, viciously depriving her of the opportunity to get her own back.

Sadly, I no longer remember the wording of the card. It's sad when family legends deteriorate.

If you don't remember, I'll have to start reading birthday cards, looking for one that would fit.
