HOB: Bishop Birthdays (fwd)

Gentle bishop,

I just received this delightful note regarding the oldest ECUSA bishop,
who will be 99 on July 12th.  I encourage each of you to join me in
sending him a birthday card:

The Rt. Reverend Nelson M. Burroughs

Joy and long life to each of you!

Mr. Crew -

I came upon your page about 2 months ago and told my 98 year old
Grandfather (The Rt. Reverend Nelson M. Burroughs) that he was in it. 
He has been calling me about it ever since to find out who else is on
it.  I finally got around to finding it again.  The list is wonderful,
and I just wanted to let you know that, though he's the going to be 99
next month, he plans on staying on the list for many more years.  He's
10 years older than the next oldest bishop, so he has the record by a
long shot.  Sincerely, Rich Fahy (his grandson)

Please sign my guestbook and view it.
