Happy Anniversary To My Mom And Dad!
Happy 51st Anniverary to my parents, Marilyn and Frank……
Wow 51 years together. They are both 73 years old, soon to be 74, both graduated from the same High School and High School Class. My Mom a cheerleader and Dad (before he hurt his knee) was on the football team. A match made in heaven. (They’d say, “Somedays.”) Even with all the ups and downs and the arguments that comes with 51 years together….the connection between them is amazing.
