My Parents, Bill and Mary Brown Celebrate 61 Years of Marriage Today

As the eldest son, I am perhaps one of the supreme authorities on this marriage since I have had the closest and longest inside view of almost anyone alive. As a long term observer, I must say that this has been a sweet marriage. Some of the more junior observers of this marriage say:
Grandson David says: “It is a blessing to watch the example of their interactions.”
Granddaughter Blair says: “I want a marriage like that.”
Granddaughter Claudia says: “We have had the benefit of 61 years of a marriage on the right path – their lives have been such a good example to me.”
Daughter in-law Deborah says: “Staying married this long has made them free to be with us and minister to us – like today when Grandmary helped Claudia bake.”
