Numerical Threads to My Great Grandmother's 89th Birthday

Yesterday I attended the family reunion of my great great grandfather, Thomas George Fonnereau Dolby. T.G.F. Dolby had 16 children. After his first wife passed, he immigrated to the United States (Elgin, IL) in the 1800's with his 13 children. My great grandmother was the 13th child, the last to be born in London (Dulwich). He remarried and had two more children. T.G.F was a deeply religious man, liked to sing and loved cats - all of which seems to have rubbed off on his forbears. He founded three church mission-communites in Elgin. He was a successful business man in London, holding many patents. This is one of his devices - a water bottle which doubled as a life preserver - which which he sold to immigrants who ventured across the pond.
 T.G.F Dolby is off to the right - his second wife on the left - plus 15 children. My great grandmother Florence is in the middle row third from the right counting T.F.G as #1. (click picture to enlarge)
Now here's the connection to 89....
Here's a picture of an article written by my great grandmother on 7/21/68 which was her 89th birthday.  

Yesterday, the date of the Dolby Family reunion, was 9/07/13 which was 16484 days from 19680721, my great grandmother's 89th birthday.  

16484 = 317 prime X 52

Yesterday was EXACTLY 317 prime days from 20140721 which will be my great grandmother's 135th birthday.  135 corresponds to Sun (135) which is the ruling planet for the astrological sign of Leo (356) which corresponds to the Human Heart and the Divine Birthmonth of August.  

My late father, Fred Smart, Jr. - who passed in 1996 - will be celebrating his 89th "Prime of Leo (356)" birthday next year, the same year that my great grandmother Florence Dolby Wolfe turns 135 (Sun) years young. 

Here's the poem above typed out as follows:


I’m really quite elated:

I never  thought I’d see the DAY
When I’d be 89 years of age
with heart so light and gay!
I’ll tell you why – my secret –
this house you know as me
Is just for me to live in:
myself you cannot see!

It’s true the roof is turning white
and windows do not shine:
That the foundation often totters
as it bows to Father Time:
But that’s not me, for I’m inside –
my Foundation standeth sure
For it’s on the ROCK OF AGES,
that forever shall endure!

So I’m singing and rejoicing
as I wing my upward way;
With Christ my dearest Savior
whose face, I’ll see that DAY;
When all the dead in Christ shall rise
and we who in Christ remain
Shall be caught up to meet Him in the air,
to follow in His train. 

The end of the 8100th cycle of 89 days fell on 5/13/68 which was ONE (1) plus 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" days from August 11th, the Divine Birthdate in 1968, the year this poem was written.  My great grandmother's 89th birthday fell 20 days from the end of the 8101st cycle of 89 days since the birth of our Lord God Jesus Christ.
