Suzy’s Mother’s Day Birthday Party

My mother, Suzy Shepard, or Shushi as some of us endearingly call her, turned 60 on Sunday, May 10.

To know Shushi is to know a great mother, one who is selfless and loving. It’s no wonder her birthday always falls within a few days of Mother’s Day.

So her four children — Benjamin, Carl, Marilyn and Michael — decided to honor their mom with a surprise “MDay-BDay” party on a beautiful spring Sunday at Tilles Park. Family and close friends arrived bearing gifts, food and tons of admiration for Shushi and the rest of the stellar moms in attendance. Big thanks to everyone who made it memorable.

Now, go hug your mother.
