Touching story! I think most of the marriages from WWII era lasted long compared to these days. RIPRead More Mr. & Mrs. Gay...

Charles-I agree with you but marriage has been redefined. I think households worked better whenRead More roles were more established. We will not see those days again.

Dan, I also agree with you. The leave it to beaver days worked. God only knows what will happen inRead More the next 30 yrs. My parents were married for 51 yrs when my dad passed. I can't imagine being with my husband that long (joking).

Born in 1943 and just shy of her 96th birthday? I'm not familier with new math i guess....

To those who support St. Jude, a thank you is simply not sufficient, but it's all I've got. MyRead More daughter just completed treatment for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). She wouldn't be here today without the outstanding care provided by St. Jude. It's a debt I will never be able to repay.
