We were married in the Church of the Nazarene in Gilmer Texas; her father was pastor there and he married us. She's been a great life partner, especially to put up with me for all these years. We have 2 daughters and six grandkids, and a lot of wonderful memories. Thank you Sharn Jean!

    Love, Dennis.
    Congrats Dennis. 50 yrs says at least one of you are an angel. Got you beat by one yr and one week. Your comments about the bride could have come from me.

    As for the For better or for worse I got the better part of the deal and she got the worse. We'll have to see how things goes the next 50.

    50 is terrific. My inlaws made it to nearly 70 years before he passed away. Nearly all of those years were in in the same house.
    She lives with us now and at age 92 is still the Energizer bunny.

    May I be the kind of person my dogs think I am,

    Congratulations and God's blessings to both of you.

    Sadly, I will never have the honor of being married for 50 years. My wife, of 21 years, passed in 2002 at the age of 44. She was an athletic, beautiful and loving woman, until cancer won that battle. She is with the Lord. I have remarried and celebrated my 1st anniversary just last week ... looking forward to 25

    Cherish each other. Things can change in the blink of an eye.

    I wrote this for my late about 2 years after her passing ..

    The grass is always green here,
    fed by my lonely tears.
    The agonizing seconds pass slowly,
    but have added up to years.

    You were taken far too early
    and left me here behind,
    A broken heart and empty life
    is now all I claim as mine.

    Though many came to love you,
    so few could understand
    The gift you had that touched my soul,
    each time you held my hand.

    This life was hard and so unfair
    to one so kind and true
    God felt your pain, called out your name
    and kept His promise to you.

    My arms still reach to hold you
    and draw you oh so near
    My heart has died and love is dead
    but the grass is always green here.

    Egbert; That is a lovely poem! Thank you for sharing with us.
