50th Wedding Anniversary

~  My parents.

My father passed away 6 years ago and today they would have celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.  I wanted to share some pictures of their special day :)

As some of you know, the pain from losing a parent or loved one never goes away.  You just learn to cope with it.  Momentous occasions, like today, can be difficult.  Bittersweet.

My family always keeps his spirit alive.  We miss him dearly, especially his never-ending, positive outlook on life.  I  think he would get a hoot out of seeing his picture floating out there in the blogosphere :)

Speaking of picture...

Weren't they a cute couple?  My dad was 25 and my mom was only 20 (turning 21 three days after their wedding.)  They had a beautiful life together.  It was not always easy, but they always kept God first.

My mother always says, "The best gift a father can give his children is to love their mother."  And he did.
