Look at all of those young faces! Time marches on, not always kindly. From left to right: my brother Don, my sister Jo, Tom's cousin Tommy, my sister Laurie, the newlyweds, my sister Ilene, Tom's brother Dave, my brother Henry, Tom's cousin Danny.
We lost sister Jo and cousin Danny much too early. But the rest of us are happy, healthy and still making a positive impact on our world.
The Puyallup Valley was known for its daffodils, and yes, that's what the bridesmaids carried and the groomsmen wore on their lapels. Daffodils have always had a special place in my heart.
And so does that handsome young man at my side. Youth is fleeting, but love is not. Tom has been my life partner and best friend through all these years.
And we have many more to go.
