In heaven now, I still recall my parents with
fondness and love. Both great role models,
it seems I sound just like them today!
Incredible how advice and words roll off my tongue.
This happens in most families I imagine.
Turn the light off when you leave the
room, close the door, please and thank you.
Seventy-eight years ago they married.
June 7, 1941. The same day my Dad
graduated Boston University. Young
love and interrupted for a time by
WWII but resumed happily. They
met and married in Boston and
came from small Western Massachusetts
towns. The home in Sturbridge had
plenty of room to play in summer
and build snowmen in winter. Long,
uninterrupted days of outdoor play
is what I fondly recall. After the move
to Colorado, my Dad finished the
home in Belmont, a Pueblo suburb.
Prairie land and more arid than
Massachusetts but a healthier
climate with abundant sun.
Two incredible people met,
married and faced life’s obstacles
with a strong faith and abiding love.
To my role models, Mom and Dad:
I wish you continued joy, love
and happiness in heaven. We
talk to you all the time, you know.
With much love: Happy Anniversary!
