Love stories. Cannot get through this day today without acknowledging the love of my parents. My Dad died two years ago, but this day is engraved in my heart; it is the day my parents married.  Their love story is private, but I can share they were deeply in love. They went to the same church together before they dated and fell in love. After they married my dad was in service with the Army. They traveled in the beginning and later settled back into life in the St Louis area. Dad graduated from Wash U.and Mom was at St Louis Teacher's college. She took time off to have my older brother Bill and me. 

Not sure, but think it was Dad's idea to leave Missouri and they headed to Texas. Each succeeding year they celebrated their anniversary. These were years of love, joy and commitment made with their journey together as they left their families and church to move south. We welcomed my youngest brother Kirk to the family and life was just fuller. 

They set the highest example for all of us on maintaining a good relationship with God and with the commitment to their marriage. There were hard times and joyful times. There were loving times and there were mourning times. They took each day together and lived it the best they could depending on their faith and their commitment to God and to each other.

Sending Love to my Mom on this special day and saying 'Thank you' for showing us the way.


Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. ! Corinthians 13:4-7
