Subject: RE: Jean Ritchie Turns 90
Happy belated birthday, dear cousin! I know that we have never met, but you were a cousin to my grandfather. A few years back when I was doing family research you were so kind as to email me stories about my great grandfather and such and I am eternally grateful to you for that.

It was always nice growing up sitting around the table with my father's sisters, listening to them sing. And so much more wonderful knowing where that came from. It was a Ritchie thing! Wonderful to know being a Ritchie came with more than just being ornery and stubborn!

I love listening to your records. It reminds me of being a child and listening to my Aunts.

Anyway, I hope you did have a wonderful birthday and a happy holiday season with your family! I think of you often and please know that you are in the prayers of all of my Ritchie aunts and the like :-)

Sending my love from California ♥
Lissa Ritchie
