The WeddingMom and Dad were married August 9, 1951, in Piggot, Arkansas, when they were both 19 years old. Dad came home on leave from the Navy on Saturday, they went to church on Wednesday, and Dad says, "Let's get married." A small wedding was planned for the following Monday at the pastor's house, but the next morning Dad was knocking on Mom's door, wanting to cross the state line into Arkansas to avoid the waiting period, and get married immediately. So... they hopped in the car and away they went. Witnesses were Mom's brother, Bill, and Dad's mother. The rest, as they say, is history.
The Early Years
|This is for you Dad, just because you asked!|
Celebrating 50 Years!Mom and Dad are the parents of 4 children, the grandparents of 12 more, and the great-grandparents of 7. They've taught us all by example how to live and how to love, and for that we thank them. Our parents gave us a safe and happy home to grow up in, and they made each one us feel that we were special in our own way.
Mom and Dad.... we all want you both to know how much we love you and how blessed we feel to be a part of your lives and to have you as a part of ours. Here's wishing you a Happy Golden Anniversary and many, many more wonderful years to come.
wish Mom and Dad a Happy 50th.
