16th Wedding Anniversary

(Photo: Nov. 30, 1991 - As I look at all of the sweet friends and family in this photo, I am moved by the kindness, love and support they've all so lovingly continued to give us over so many years!

school with a little smile on her face, yet declaring, “Today was the
worst day ever.” I asked her what happened and she told me in the

Your mom is definitely right about the two of you making it through the (very, very) hard times.

Hello, Congratulations on your anniversary, I wish you many more happy years together.
Don't they feed the kids proper food at school? Do they get at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day to eat? (more if possible!) If they are having peanut butter sandwiches or breakfast for lunch at school I doubt it!!! Wake up America!!! Healthy food for kids!
Take care,
love Angela
