Yesterday we celebrated a 65th wedding anniversary! Sarah and her sweetie, Alex, are with Grandpa and Grandma. What can I say? All four of them are so special to me!
The only thing that would have made the day better was to have their son and Sarah's daddy celebrating with us. I still miss him.

Congratulations to your in-laws - What a sweet picture. 65 years is a long time! I was just saying to Bob that my maiden name seems so foreign to me, as I only used it 19 years compared to the 54 years as a Saulmon! Have a good week. Sally

There is nothing like phamily! Even when we miss the ones that have gone before us! We a lovely tribute. If you don't mind me asking, how long were you and Wally married? I love to hear about phamily stuff and especially love that is sooooo long lasting! You are a wonderful lady Marilyn! One of these we will have to get together! Your daughter and her honey are very sweet and the in-laws, WOW! A special anniversary. A couple I know, who are patients at my office where I work, celebrated 65 years too! She was a lot younger than him and she is in very poor health and he keeps going strong! Life works in a funny way! We are wise when we grow older and know nothing when we are young! It seems unfair but I suppose God had His reasons!
Hope your week will be blessed! Anne

I love it that he's holding her hand.


Love, R
