A birthday is a special marker inside your volume, "Book of Life." Between the markers lay the pages of each year's happiness and strife. And, like a story, life progresses unfolding gently page by page, the character and growing wisdom that magnifies with each new age. Joyce, with the coming of this birthday, a special marker joins the rest, the hundredth one among your pages, says you are living life your best. Your gardening, your moving poems, and love of family so dear; your gifted years of life we honor... applaud your day with love and cheer!
