65 Years of “Weddedness”


From the Tracy Press, June 20, 2013

This notice of my parents’ 65th wedding anniversary celebration appeared recently in the Tracy Press.  It occurs to me that a brief historical account of selected facts is hardly testimony to what terrific parents we are lucky to have.

As I have come to learn, the real heroes in life are ‘ordinary’ people, most of whom you’ve never heard.  They are decidedly not the athletes, entertainers and politicians who dominate the media attention.

Thankfully for the four kids, grandkids, laws, in-laws and out-laws, friends, co-workers and fellow parishioners, their impact goes way beyond a brief statement of historical facts, to the heroic and unassuming examples they set.
