To celebrate the monumental event of 40 years together, we (the Hills and the Crowes) hosted a romantic dinner for our parents at our home. They were served a 4 course dinner in the privacy of our dining room. The grandchildren just loved helping and serving them. It was a fun time for all!

40 years of marital bliss have encompassed the lives of my parents. They have been through many, many ups and downs, and have weathered them with grace, mercy and most of all love. I have been privy to witness a wonderful and priceless love between two people over the years.

They are truly best friends, love birds, and soul mates through and though. My prayer is that their next 40 years will bring them even greater joy and happiness.

Happy 40th anniversary, Wow!!!

with love and amazement,
