July 24, 1959

Dad and mom on their wedding day.

Mom and dad at their 50th Anniversary Party last summer.

51 years is a long time to be married- especially in today's culture. I want to thank my parents for seeking God, loving each other, and setting a good example.
Happy 51st Mom and Dad!


  1. Thank-you! Thank-you!
    Cute story---last night when we went out for our anniversary dinner we parked the car and walked hand in hand into the restaurant when suddenly we heard a voice behind us--"excuse me, but could I ask you how long you 2 have been together?" We turned around and in unison said (to a complete stranger) "51 years-today"!!! It felt good to be able to say that. He told us that he was getting married in 3 weeks and he was 45---so he'd be 96 if he got to 51 years of marriage!!
    Love, Mom

  2. Actually- you guys have been together for longer than 51 years... since 9th grade- which makes it closer to 56 years. That poor guy would have to be 101 to beat your record!
