Married 70 years

Hi Everyone
 Happy Monday
Yesterday we  were at a
 Celebration of Life
 get together for handsome husbands Uncle 
He lived to the great age of 91 and 
was married to the same women
 for 70 years

What I learned from watching this amazing couple
 is how
 kind they were to each other
there was always a sense of mutual respect and thoughtfulness

They got married when she was 16 and he was 21
and both said their
 for each other grew stronger with every passing year 
They had 3 children and many grandchildren as well as great grand children 

They were passionate about life 
and enjoyed
camping, fishing, hiking, walking, 
dancing, and most of all family 
and friends

They were alone together when he passed she was holding his hand
She said that was a gift he gave her 
 and she was grateful

What an amazing inspiration 
if you read the marriage vows
it says
 do you take this person to have and to hold
 for richer or poorer 
in sickness and in health
in good times and bad
 forsaking all others
 till death do you part

The Celebration of his Life 
was filled with stories of a well lived life 
shared with the women he Loved
until the day he died
this couple honored those vows for 70 years !!!
Now that's what I call a real life

romantic saying for today

"I shall Love you with my whole heart for my whole life"
