What a great weekend on the Ridge! The sixty-fifth anniversary picnic was wonderful. The lovely bride and groom were delighted with the love and support shown to them by family, friends and neighbors. The weather, while hot, was not oppressively so. Of course there was great food, Jeff and Mary fried up chicken and grilled hot dogs, Kevin provided pulled port but everyone contributed something, sides and desert of all kinds. Edna and Jane baked and decorated one hundred and ninety cup cakes! There was garden ripe tomatoes and cucumbers, Mom’s fried cornbread and even chicken and dumplings – yum!
We had a slide show running on a continuous loop, the story of two lives lived in love; inspiring examples of what kindness, hard work and strong faith can bring to a family and a community. We love you mom and dad.
