85 Years and Counting

Happy Birthday to the most wonderful person I know, my grandma Reva Sahm, who is 85 years young!  Thank you for being the best, grandma!
This is what my aunt Kathy posted about her mom, my grandma, and Addie's great-grandma - 

Happy birthday to my mom, Reva Sahm, the only child of farmers who-- graduated from Purdue, became a high school teacher, got married and popped out 9 kids in 14 years, lost her husband at the age of 45, battled breast cancer at 70, flew a plane at 83, is an amazing grandma to 25, great-grandma to 8, soon to be 10, and still enjoys life (and wine) to the fullest.
