Sixty-One


Today my folks will celebrate 61 years of marriage...even though, as my mom often says, "They said we were too young."

But obviously they weren't and have made it work...together...for a very long time. (Plus they raised three great kids...just ask me, I'll tell you.)

Sadly the day is bittersweet because just yesterday Mom lost her beloved older brother, Ed. The dark and the light....the joy and the pain...what life seems to bring us,  twined together like vines......

Blessings to your parents for 61 wonderful years, and my condolences to you and your family on the loss of your uncle.

Yes . . . like vines.

Please give your parents my best and convey my deepest sympathies to your mother on the loss of her brother.

My brother is 12 months younger than I. I cannot think of a world without him.

Shirley, thank you for both. I feel so bad for my mom's whole family. Such a sad time and they are far apart geographically.

Cathy, thank you. I will. I have two younger brothers and they are wonderful men. I hope they know how much they are loved.
