This day would have marked the 57th year of marriage for my parents. 

I am so proud to say my parents meant it when they said those words.  They worked hard on the marriage that seemed to come so easy to them.

Even though our dad’s body is no longer with us, it seems his strength and his spirit will live forever in our mother and in all of us.

  2. A lovely thought. It seems our parents in general work harder at everything than my generation. A commitment was a commitment and your word was your honor.
