She was between her Junior and Senior years of high school and he was in the Navy. He was away for part of her school year, and when he was home he had to sign her report cards or absent slips.
They both were churched but didn't know the Lord then either. Over the years they struggled, but the Lord kept them together.
They have a heritage of 3 kids, 1 daughter in law, 1 son in law, 10 grandkids, 3 granddaughter in laws, 3 grandson in laws, and 9 great grandkids.
Today they celebrate 60 years of marriage.

Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad! We love you!
