Dear Amy,
Ali's 50th came and the big day was marvelous. Not only did the surprise work, but she was floored by the poem I read to her. I'll never forget her laughter and her tears of joy. I'll be in touch again. You can be sure of that.

A sampling from a 50th Birthday Poem.

Sung to the tune of “Yankee Doodle Dandy”

Happy Birthday dear old Howie,
You’re a Great Neck kind of guy…
A real live macher into Auto Parts,
Business is growing, oh my!

Got a sweetie, your wife Frannie,
She’s so gorgeous, this is true…
Howard came to Kings Point and to Key Biscay-ayne…
Hey, Howie, happy birthday to you!

Howie, active at his golf game
At Old Westbury, the club…
But his feet are so sore they really ache so much,
Acupuncture, rub-a-dub!

Got a trio of sweet children,
David, Betsy, Debbie,
And Frannie in the house, takin’ charge it’s easy…
She has quite a leading role.

Howie, happy birthday fifty,
You are just a sweet old guy.
A real live mensch in every way that counts,
And wholesome as fresh baked rye.
