Happy 61st Anniversary Mom and Dad


Happy 61st Anniversary Mom and Dad
61 years together you graced this land
So many good stories to tell us all
And even the bad one's that you recall
But still you where so strong to see it through
Setting examples for all to see and do
You've been there and done that in your life
Not much you haven't done in joy or strife
You two definitely wrote the book
on how to marry and what it took
So Happy 61st Anniversary Mom and Dad
I hope you have many more...that would make me glad

    Simply beautiful JoJo, How proud your parents must be of their wonderful daughter who not only loves them so, but is literally helping keep them well with no thought of herself...Welcome back, I've missed you and your words... I am so glad to have come in tonight and found this...Been real busy getting ready. Going To ILLINOIS soon for an eleven day visit and I can barely wait...So grammie's been stocking up on goodies to hand out..like the newest Thomas The Tank trains etc, as well as fixing me......hair, etc...Please don't go away again and yes I know your plate is more than full.....love, hugs, marci.xo (Report) Reply

    Have to echo David's sentiments here.It will be 60 yrs. for my parents in '09.
    A most heartwarm, and eloquently expressed dedicational...Your love shines through in this poem like a beacon over the ocean on a crystal clear night.
    And as i see it, Mom & Dad are as equally as blessed in having you for a daughter.

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,

The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
