Fifty Years Together

Fifty years together

Now in the twilight of your lives,

Since that day in 1945

When you became man and wife..

From the day you took your vows

And promised to be one,

There was nothing that together...

You couldn't overcome.

The lean years that your shared

Now grow dim in memory,

For you've been blessed so many times

In your half a century!

You've been so very fortunate

In your careers you've known success,

Your children and your grandkids

Have brought you happiness.

Together you'll look forward

To the years that lie ahead,

May they be just as rewarding...

As the FIFTY you've been wed!

Ethel M. Sandstrom 1995

I penned this poem on the occasion of my sister-in-law's and brother-in-law's 50th Anniversary! It was my gift to them.

I have since used it to honor other friends who reach this milestone
in life.

(JC passed away on Feb. 28, 1999. He was a true Southern
Gentleman, and is dearly missed by all. who had the privilege
of knowing him.)

(MaryO passed away on Sept. 29, 2000 after waging a courageous
battle with cancer. May she find peace as she joins her beloved JC)

This Midi is: "The Anniversary Waltz"
