Wesley Dillard Self will turn 90 tomorrow. See the related blog post from September 15. I found three pictures of Dillard in the archives that I thought I would share with everyone. The first one shows (left to right) Dillard and his brothers, Arnold and Clarence Self. The second is of Dillard and his mother, Mae Self. The last one is of Dillard and his sister Reba Self Roberts.
Happy 90th Birthday Dillard!!!
