And what a great journey this has been” “God has truly been with us through our moves, losing loved ones, and has filled our hearts with love, hope, and peace. … Wade and I are so thankful for the love and life we share...fifty years is long time...but with our faith, family and friends we hope to continue for many more years. … We are truly blessed!”
