My (great) Aunt Eva Pearl kept a diary of the entire year that I was born January-December of 1981. I received it last year, after her death, and it is the most precious thing that I own. On this date, 27 years ago she wrote:
6 May 1981-Wednesday- The great day arrived-you were born. Such a beautiful little girl!
We love your name--SusanLee - Lee for your grandmother and great grandmothers (Lackey and McCaghren). Mother, your great grandmother (who died the day before I was born), was a person of principle. She was self reliant and determined. She had a strong personality.
O-how proud we are of you! You have such wonderful parents. May your life be a happy one. You will have an abundance of love showered upon you!
And I have.
