June 7, 1960 a young man from Ada, Oklahoma married his high school sweetheart. Fifty years, 3 children, and 8 grandchildren later, they celebrate their Golden Anniversary!!
The whole family, along with nearly 150 friends and family gathered to celebrate and honor my parents this weekend. There were flowers, there was food, there was music, there was poetry, there was laughter, and there were many hugs. The room was filled with lots of love for two people who have been an amazing example to all of us. Thank you, mom and dad, for always choosing each other, for always choosing faithfulness, and for always choosing to put God first. I am so grateful that God chose you both to be my parents! I love you!
