TO MY ADORABLE WIFE PATTY
July 25, 2019 marks our 60th Wedding Anniversary.
Since July 25, 1959 we have seen this country grow from 177,830,000 people in 49 States to over 329,200,000 in 50 States. Together, we have contributed three wonderful children to the population, who in turn have added seven more.
We have managed to survive twelve presidents and more congressmen and governors than I care to count. We have lived through four wars, three of which we were personally involved in.
During these past 60 years we have lived in 37 apartments, trailers, condos and houses in 10 states, 26 municipalities and 27 ZIP codes, all of which you turned into beautiful, loving homes. We have also had at least 19 different cars, some good and some not so good, but are now down to one.
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.
