Married for fifty years! Wow!!! What an accomplishment. Not only married but HAPPILY married for those same years.
They started out as teenagers in love, married in love, started careers in love, had children in love, raised children in love, argued in love, disagreed in love, participated in their church in love, made life long friends in love, traveled in love, helped others in love, celebrated in love, watched the children grow up in love, saw grandchildren born in love, continued their careers in love, mourned in love, buried their parents in love, retired in love, set the bar high in love, served as an example of how to live a good life in love! These two wonderful people are meant to be together they are still in love.
Fifty years and counting! I have a great respect and deep abiding love for these two special people. They have made a huge impact on my life, in ways they will never know. I am honored to have been apart of their lives for the past 34 years. I have learned from your actions, they do speak so much louder than words. Take one step at a time. Above all you hold family and friends close and you support them even when you disagree with their choices. You LOVE them.
I love you both.
