Happy Anniversary #59!

Happy 59th Anniversary to my parents! They were high school sweethearts. On May 29, 1961, they exchanged vows at 21, just a couple of kids.

  1. Crystal. Thanks so much for sharing those pictures. Your mom has the sweetest smile and although I haven’t seen her since she became ill I am touched to see your dad caring for her. That’s what love is all about.

    1. Sharon, I can’t believe I even have those pictures. When my aunt passed away last fall, my cousin had an envelope of photos for our family. I didn’t have a chance to flip through them until I was home for the holidays, and I took pictures of the prints with my phone. They definitely complete the story. Thanks for reading!


    1. Yes! Thank you, Allan. So thankful to have my mom’s words in writing. I have photocopies of my dad’s handwritten memoirs and one of my grandmother’s also. My organization never recovered from the hurricane a few years ago, but I know those copies were saved, and I’ll find them some day.


  2. This is absolutely charming and inspiring! My parents also met in high school and because of the draft married a few years after graduation. Congratulations on your parents 59th anniversary, that is so rare in our society. Loved that you included so many adorable pics! Wonderful tribute to your parents. Thanks for sharing their story, C

  3. An immortal tribute, Crystal, as your as your audience has noted, to a person. Particularly shimmering, too, the tapestry your parents have woven. Exquisitely rich in detail, as well, it includes all manner of accomplishments, including you.

    Imagine, their endeavor has nurtured someone (you, that is) with the skills to delight her audience with the unfolding excellence. Well done, Crystal. More, please.

    By the way, the intervening years have polished your parents’ vows to the deepest luster, “To have and to hold…” Indeed. They’ve endured, yes, though they’ve built so much more. Extraordinary.

      1. Thank you, Crystal. I did nothing special, though. You’re the creator and the poet, and you deserve our appreciation and support, dear! Enjoy the day. Take care, Crystal.
