I’ve noted before how seeing calendars of assisted living communities sometimes makes me dread growing older. But today, I saw a newsletter that just melted my heart. A couple celebrated their 78th wedding anniversary by renewing their vows at this particular community. When the couple first married in 1926 (:!:), they eloped, so the bride never had a wedding gown or veil. This time, however, the community staff made sure she had both for the ceremony.
One other humorous point: When the pastor, asked the groom if he took this woman as his wife, he said yes, but not loud enough for her. So she nudged him and said, “Answer louder!”
But the pictures they sent are so sweet. If I knew I wouldn’t be invading someone’s privacy, I’d post them here for you, but I’d probably lose my job over it. So you’ll just have to take my word for it!
