A Rockford area woman is turning 100 this weekend and you can be part of the celebration.

Edith Mitchell, from Byron, will hit triple digits this Saturday, January 11 and her family says she loves receiving cards in the mail.

So Mitchell's family decided to ask the public if they would like to partake in Edith's birthday celebration and shower her with cards.

Get your cards in the mail today so Edith will see them tomorrow, send them to:

Edith Mitchell

811 West 2nd Street

Byron, IL 61010

Forever the concerned citizen, my first thought was "I have no idea what to write in Edith's card." I stumbled upon birthdaymessages.net and it's a gold mine of great birthday wishes for folks turning 100.

My favorite birthday message was "Happy 80th birthday for the 20th time."
