HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, HONEY

TO MY ADORABLE WIFE, PATTY

July 25, 2014 marks our 55th Wedding Anniversary.

During these past 55 years we have seen this country grow from 177,830,000 people to over 318,455,00. Together, we have contributed three wonderful children to the population, who in turn have added seven more.

We have managed to survive eleven presidents and more congressmen and governors than I care to count. We have lived through four wars, three of which we were personally involved.

During these past 55 years we have lived in 36 apartments, trailers, condos and houses in 10 states, 20 municipalities and 20 ZIP codes, all of which you turned into loving homes.

Yes, there have been ups and downs and good times and not-so-good times, but we prevailed. During this time, my love for you has grown and grown. I love you now more than ever and will until the end of time.

Patty, My Honey, you are a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and my best friend. May we have many, many more anniversaries together.

Love Always,

Your Honey


JULY 25, 1959
