David Mahone was surprised on his 60th birthday with a party in the home of his mother, Abby Mahone. Co-hosts were Molly and Larry Holder, Kelly Mahone, Lauren and Juston Weems, Erin Holder and Madelyn Holder.
Large pictures from different times in the honoree’s life decorated the home along with old milk bottles filled with crimson and cream flowers noting his habit of milk and cookies before bedtime.
David Mahone’s favorite Oklahoma City foods were served at the event…enchiladas from Ted’s, barbecue from Swadleys, vodka chicken pasta from What’s Cooking. There were 60 cupcakes with candles and his mother’s chocolate chip cookies.
Friends came from Texas, Colorado, and from all over Oklahoma. They included Robin White, M.L. and Gary Hart, Tom Talley, Beth and Ed Wells, Judy and Bill Howard, Barbara and George Dahnke, Jerry and John Lockwood, Peggy and Kevin Kuhn, Jimmy Webber, Jon Varion, Ford Farris, Colette Ellis, Brad Ellis and Steve Stephens.
