60th wedding anniversary

We celebrated my parent's 60th wedding anniversary today.


We used the same candle holders that were used at their wedding.
And at our wedding also.






Jill put pictures of their life on the laptop.
With love songs by Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong, James Taylor.
Dad and Mom greeted over 200 guests
at the Kidron Bethel Community Room.
Folks from Buhler, Pretty Prairie, Mountain Lake, MN.....


My sister-in-law, Linda, cut the cake.
Jill and my brother, Dave helped set it out.
I made up the punch and
Al served it.
Very easy recipe! And delicious!
Just mix Sprite with frozen white grape raspberry.So fun to see many friends!
Several missionary friends from Japan.
Dave and I with another Japan MK
(missionary kid) Barb (Unruh).
And our school teacher, Miss Virginia Claassen.

Here is a picture of the one room school house we attended in southern Japan.

Dave is on the right in the middle row.

Then here is a photo when Barb and I were in school.
I am on the front, on the clear left.
Barb is on the front row on the right.
My brother, Dan, who couldn't be with us today, is on the clear right.
Virginia Claassen is 2nd to the left on the back row.
The other adults were our dorm parents.
Back to the party....
Everyone seemed to have a good time.

After the party, Dad treated us at Jackie Chen's.
Yum!

Happy Anniversary, Dad and Mom!!
Thank you for your faithfulness to each other and to our Lord!
Such an example!

Wow! 60 years -- that's great! Since we got married close to 30, we'll have to be fairly old to reach 60 years. But, Lord willing, perhaps we'll do it. I'm glad you guys had a great party for them. They're deserving of that.
