A 60th Wedding Anniversary is an amazing event at any time.

It was a real joy and privilege to be able to join with family to celebrate this milestone with Uncle Stewart and Aunt Lil, my mom’s younger sister. Together they raised their four children, had the privilege of being involved in the lives of their sixteen grand children and now nine great grandchildren.

I know that their marriage did not survive because it was an easy road but rather because they made a committment to each other which they held dear and were prepared to work hard to preserve. How wonderful it is to see them at this point in their lives still enjoying each others company and having fun with their family.

This is their grand daughter Sara, modelling the dress that Lil wore, purchased  in 1951 at Garber’s for the exorbitant price of $34.00.
