This was so well written it gave me goose bumps. I work with the elderly and you gave voice to so much. Humor, wisdom, loss and hope all rolled into one great piece!

Congratulations, Glenn! I love how 750 word limits demand the show of priorities -- how well you express that in the span of 100 years of living. I didn't hear a word about job, power, wealth. . . very interesting. It's all about relationship. Great job!

Glenn, I finally got a chance to read some of the entries for "BIRTHDAY." Oh my, this one takes the cake! It is one of the best pieces of "BIRTHDAY CAKE" I have ever eaten. I LOVED EVERY MORSEL! You have an enormous gift that leaves "footprints" in the hearts of your readers. Thank you!
