Belated birthday wishes

Posted Tuesday, January 3, 2012, at 8:59 AM

Willard Scott of NBC's "Today" show wished a happy 101st birthday this morning to Ettie Williams of Shelbyville. Although it doesn't appear she's able to give interviews, we've been told that she planned to watch the greeting this morning at one of our local care facilities, where she's a resident. Her actual birthday was last month.

We'd certainly like to join Willard Scott in wishing her a happy birthday.

Thanks John, my dad always liked Willard and said he would like to be on the jelly jar, but that was not to be. It was nice of them to honor my mom.
