On February 23rd, granddaughter, Laura Bedol celebrated her

21st birthday with her extended family at Mimmi’s Café in Upland, Ca.

It was rather a special event, which included Laura’s outstanding

musical performance at the Bob Coles conservatory of Music at Long

Beach State University this past year! It was truly a well-deserved event

in which this particular birthday will always be remembered for its special



Laura’s family consisted of Laura’s parents, mother, Keri Bedol,

father, Mark Bedol, sister, Jessica, brother, Adam Bedol!  Her uncle David

and aunt, Melanie Lawrence from No. Carolina including California grand

parents, Sol and Mona Raskin!

It was an especially joyful and happy occasion having the extended

family get together! Today many relatives live in other parts of our nation &

its difficult to meet one another on special occasions!

Fortunately, it was also a sunny and pleasant afternoon, which took

place a week before we experienced a huge winter storm!  Aside from the

fierce winds and continuing rain, So. California somehow truly managed to

be rather thankful for the much needed water!
