My mom was a mere 19 when they married and my dad 21. They left their home and all they knew behind in England and boarded a ship to America just a couple of weeks after this photo was taken. I can't imagine getting married, moving to a new country and having my first child in my early 20's...that took great courage and a lot of faith.
My parents are wonderful, amazing people and have weathered many storms over their five decades together. They are a blessing to their family and friends and we will celebrate them this evening with a special dinner. Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad - we love you!
