Stan Gainer's Birthday

Monday, May 25th was Stan Gainer's 80th birthday.  Mary planned a surprise birthday party for Stan at Angler's Restaurant in Monticello, Indiana.  Attending were Stan's two daughters, Janet and husband Mike Stratton and Karen and husband Mike Angle.  Also in attendance were two of Janet and Mike Stratton's sons along with their wives and five children.  Karen and Mike Angle's daughter with her four children attended. When we walked to the room I had reserved he then thought, "something is going on".  We entered the room and he was speechless.  It is very difficult to surprise Stan with anything but this time it worked and was a wonderful.
