Helen Wahlgren's 100th birthday

Dear President Obama and First Lady Michelle,

I sent the following letter to you in late February, after trying to make contact twice before. Yet, I've not yet received an acknowledgment. Plz respond to my request to make a 100 year old woman very happy. I will send you Helen's bio upon request. I have not given up hope....

Best regards,
Marcia Fife

Dear President Obama and First Lady Michelle,

I hope this gets to you, as time is getting short. I sent a letter in early Jan. and again in early Feb., but I've not heard back.

My friend, Helen Wahlgren, will be 100 years old on March 6 and her family is throwing a 'party of the century' in her honor. She continues to be a big fan of yours,, so I would like to surprise her with a birthday greeting from you and Michelle on this momentous occasion.

I'm asking that you mail the birthday greeting to my home, as Helen sustained a fall on Election Day and is now staying with her grandson, but we don't know for how long. I will be sure that Helen receives your card upon delivery to my home.

Thanking you in advance for honoring my request. I'm sure it will mean a lot to Helen and her family.

Best regards,
Marcia Fife
