My best friend is 70 today! We have been together almost 42 years and most of those years have been spent happily facing the challenges of life together. I give us an A+ for endurance! Even when we have disagreed, we have done it with a commitment to love and respect each other. We have each faced the death of a parent and depended on the other for support and encouragement. We have each faced serious health problems and spent many hours sitting and waiting in hospital rooms together. We have also celebrated some wonderful family events- graduations, weddings, births. We have raised three children and we now have the joy of following the lives of three grandchildren. We’re looking forward to retirement and spending even more time together pursing our hobbies.
Happy Birthday Gary!
