On May 11 of 2021 Mel Oakes turned 85 and Pat Oakes turned 80 on June 28th. Combining birthday presents, their daughters, Beth, Sarah and Mardie contacted many of their friends and ask them to make a short video which were collected in the video below. On Mel's birthday the girls arranged a Zoom call and surprised us with the video. We all watched it together. A most memorable event for the family and much appreciated by Mel and Pat. We thank all our friends and relatives who contributed.
