November 20, 1993


My parents were married for over 50 years.
These are images of the greeting card that my mother sent The Hubby and I today.  25 years ago, he and I flew off to Las Vegas, and got hitched.  The last sibling in my family to marry, we chose to be low key and quiet.  We'd been a couple for many years, so why throw a fancy party?  That year, my family gathered for Thanksgiving, and surprised us with a coconut cream cake in celebration of our marriage.

We are comfortable like an old pair of shoes, but there is still plenty of fire and laughter.  We complement each other; he is careful and methodical...and I am quick and dreamy.  Losing Chuck on our anniversary last year was difficult, and yet it seemed inevitable; I had the day off from work, and our love for him was the most important thing.  That's what a family does; love and laugh, cry and grow.

For a moment, I was stunned: I saw the '1993' and the card that was printed '25th', so I thought your 25th anniversary was 25 years ago. Impossible! Pictures are worth a thousand words, but sometimes the words are garbled...

Anyway, happy anniversary! And losing Chuck on your anniversary may very well have been a way of making sure that you and the Hubby were with him that day. They are clever these cats, and loving. They know the value of family, as much as we humans do.

Happy 25th Anniversary! I can't believe it's been a year since Chucky left for the bridge. The only thing that could've made that card better is two BLACK cats on the outside [looking at you, Manny and Chili Bruce] ;)
