Their children submitted the following:

It is Mom and Dad’s 50th Anniversary, and it is time,

To put up with Mike and the way he does rhyme;

On June 10, 2017, please let them hear,

Rounds of applause and some cheer.


Mom and Dad married in New Martinsville on June 10, 1967,

Located in the great state known as “Almost Heaven”;

From First Christian Church, they gave their vows,

And have kept those promises, then and now.

We love you very much – Happy Anniversary!
