Birthday and Anniversary Wishes


My mom, Hazel Bentz Druck





If you had to guess how old my mom will be on her birthday, you’d probably get it wrong!      



What can I say about her that I haven’t already written somewhere in this blog?        

I can sum it up in one line: She’s an incredible woman.         

On Saturday, September 4, 2010, Hazel Bentz Druck celebrates her 87th birthday – and she’s still going strong.          

I’m the oldest of five kids my parents raised on a 40-acre farm in York Township, York County, Pa., where they also raised thousands of chickens, which laid thousands and thousands of eggs.        

It was not an easy life; Mom and Dad both worked hard. Eventually Dad started his own garage-door company, and my parents gave up raising chickens and eggs. For a while Mom worked in the cafeteria at the Dallastown Area High School.

Despite some recent nagging shoulder and back problems, she continues to golf regularly throughout the season. She remains in good health, and her energy and enthusiasm are boundless.        

Happy 87th Birthday to a truly amazing woman!       

 Also celebrating a birthday soon is my granddaughter Brigitta Kiessling, who was born on her great-grandmother’s birthday, September 4. You’ll soon hear more about my dad, Benjamin E. Druck, who’ll celebrate his 92nd birthday on September 14, 2010.
