Did I mention...

...that this very day the lovely Cindi has been my bride for 26 years? Before the altar of the Lutheran Church of St. Andrew we "plighted our troth" - well, since we used the service LBW we actually didn't, but that sounds more impressive. I remember that it was rainy and overcast. I think back to all the friends gathered there that day to celebrate with us. So many have already passed on: my mother, my brother, Nana, Grandpa and Grandma DeVries, Uncle Neil, Aunt Fanny, Aunt Emma, Aunt Connie, George Higgens from Louisiana, so many more. Gerry Coleman blessed us with some special music; though he was not the organist that day - a friend of Cindi's family, Rick, played for us. The wedding took place during the Eucharist, at which Pastor Lobien was celebrant and also the officiant of the wedding. It was a blessed day - and I can't believe it was that long ago.

Doorman,

Thanks so much. I think it is a sheer act of divine grace that enabled Cin to put up with me all these years - and that is absolute truth.

I think it is the anniversary of about half the couples in Blogoslavia.

Congratulations and Many Years! Enjoy!
