Forty years


On July 16th. 1971, Walt and I were wed at the Naval Weapons Stations Chapel in Weymouth, MA. It has been forty years filled with the wonderful, the mundane the unexpected and a tragedy, the worst I think that can ever stress a marriage relationship, five years ago the loss of a beloved child, our son Matthew.
Our family wished to bless us after forty years of marriage with a delightful celebration at Andrew and Lana's home.


Lovely food, good company and a gorgeous cake from "Cathy's Rum Cakes".
We brought a little of it home to enjoy, and we certainly will!
Hugs and kisses and much love to our family for this honor.

You both still look like you did when you were married... except for hair color. Forty years... awesome. I hope you have many happy years ahead.

Hugs and congratulations!

Congratulations you two~ I know you have been through many things that most marriages, thankfully, don't have to endure, but you made it through with each others help and here you are...40 years. How wonderful.

CONGRATULATIONS to both of you!!
I love the photos. You were so pretty in the first one.... and look at you now, you're still pretty.
A long marriage will always have its joys and its great sadness too. Yours has survived a horrible tragedy...none worse. That your marriage survived says a lot about both of you... about your character and strength.
I wish you both good health and happiness. You deserve it.
