They’ve lasted through the many illnesses of their children and have kept a business going together through 27 years of economic highs and lows.
They’ve traveled the world together a hundred times over and are closer today than ever.
This is a particularly special anniversary because Dad is a month into his recovery from a stroke. His mind and body have been through hell, and Dianne hasn’t left his side. Some days I wonder who has had it tougher this past month — him or her.
But the important thing is that theirs is a union that has survived and gotten stronger.
If you want to learn a thing or two about true love, watch them for five minutes.
I’ll end here, and just say to my father and step-mom: Happy Anniversary, from the core of my heart.
Here’s to many more, in sickness and in health.
