Friends and members of the Welder family gathered to congratulate Mary Elizabeth, or “Tia” as she is known to many, on reaching this milestone. Bandanas were given to the guests as souvenirs reminding them of the ones used to tie around your face when you work cattle.
The menu was regular South Texas Mexican food with the required addition of tamales, Tia’s favorite. Toasting Tia was the order of the day and her siblings posed for a rare all together in the same place at the same time picture.
“We felt very fortunate to all be together and in good health,” said Tia’s sister, Josephine Miller.
