I hope that you had a happy birthday this week up there in the Yeshivah shel Mal'ah (Yeshiva on High). We, of course, missed you terribly—as we do every day—talked about you often, and thought about you even more.
Last Wednesday night, erev your birthday and despite the Biennial planning maelstrom, I left the office on the dot of five and headed to St. Andrews Restaurant near Times Square where I met The Bridge Ladies (yes, all of them!) for dinner: Mrs. Davidson, Mrs. Gallagher, Mrs. Coopersmith, Mrs. Eisenberg (who had to leave early and isn’t in the photo), Mrs. Phelan, and even Mrs. Salzman, who’d traveled from Richmond, VA, for the reunion!

Needless to say, the time flew and before long, we were paying the bill and saying our good-byes.
The next day, I received this email from Mrs. Davidson:
It was a great night and we were so happy you were with us. You helped fill up the space your mom left in our group. I do miss her.Indeed, a reprise reunion is in the works for late spring or early summer and I’m planning to be there. As you were on Wednesday night, I know you’ll be there with us, too.
I hope we can do this again.
You look great and I hope the convention will go smoothly.
Happy birthday, The Mums….xoxo,
