Though there are no pictures to document the occasion

and though we both have different versions of the story.

It was right here about 27 years ago-  I said I would marry him!

A teeny tiny problem is he did not get down on one knee to do that

-a fact I have never let him forget-

We’ll he made sure he did it right this time -

with documentation to prove it!

She asked me for advice, “for a happy marriage”

which actually made me smile to think  -

Am I the person to ask?

Maybe Pres. Monson said it more eloquently today then I ever could.

“ ….She was the love of my life,  my trusted confident, my closest friend,….

through all these years I have felt nothing but the full and complete support of my sweet companion,

countless are the sacrifices she made…. never a word of complaint…

we were sealed by one having authority….

This is knowledge that sustains me”

Doesn’t 65 years sound amazing?!

I think that may be the same shirt I was wearing when we got engaged the first time.
