50th Anniversary party
Saturday, June 04, 2016
Today I am attending a 50th anniversary party
for a wonderful couple who are going through a very rough time. They are related to me as in-laws in-laws. Dar has been battling brain stem cancer for over one year now and is losing the battle. She is a tremendous person and a great friend. There are few people in my life that I can truly be silly stupid with and she is one of them. Her husband is one of the kindest people I've ever met. He is calm, kind of quiet with a surprising sense of humor a lot of people don't get. The party will be at the nursing home she is at. I'm so glad for this chance to see them together along with all their friends and family for what may very well be the last time.
Watching what she has gone through makes me realize that no one is guaranteed a healthy life and it reminds me that life can be so unfair in the random way illness can happen to good people.
So I am going to have a great time today celebrating the long happy life of two wonderful people. I will be celebrating their happiness at a long life together.
