They were young, beautiful and full of joy on their wedding day.
Pat and Danny married in the early 60’s.
Danny was a Navy man having joined when he was 17. His career spanned 21 years where he traveled, participated in the Korean War, was promoted to Master Chief Engineman and toward the end taught young recruits in California.
Pat was the ultimate stay-at-home mom. She raised five children providing many wonderful experiences in our youth. I am amazed at what she was able to accomplish with so little. I remember she would rise early, get her house in order and take us out to parks, zoos and the beach.
Pat demonstrated strength, compassion, thriftiness, creativity and stick-to-itiveness to my siblings and me. She always put her family first.
Danny shared his love of his Irish heritage, Country music, cooking and gardening with his family.
They were not perfect people, no one is, but their life story is a success in that they stayed together and raised five devoted children.
My parents passed away several years back. I miss them so very much.
This fall my daughter will marry her beloved
My daughter will wed on the steps of this Southern Plantation.
I wish they could be there.
My dad used to say, “rub my back or brush my hair and I will dance at your wedding”. I believe that when my daughter weds Mom and Dad will be dancing in Heaven
My daughter gave me the most extreme compliment the other day. She told me that she hopes to demonstrate a servant’s heart toward her family as she saw me do for mine.
I hope that my life and my children’s lives will be a testament to that young couple’s hopes and dreams on their wedding day.
I will be linking this post to
Wishing you a very Delightsome day,
