Letter from Bonnie and Don Paulley about Love and Marriage - 22 May 2005

Re: Love Notes - From Frank to Mary on their 43rd Anniversary

THIS IS OUR 43RD ANNIVERSARY TOO. WE WERE MARRIED MAY 22, 1962 IN DOUGLAS, WYOMING. AT ABOUT 7:30 PM, MST.

I HAD 3 CHILDREN - HE HAD 4. IN THE YEARS SINCE WE HAVE HAD 2 MORE. NO MATTER HOW BAD YOUR MATH MIGHT BE THAT'S 9 KIDS... A YOURS, MINE OURS FAMILY. IT HASN'T ALL BEEN EASY BUT OUR LOVE HAS BEEN CONSTANT. WE WERE BOTH 32 THEN - NOW WE ARE BOTH 75.

HOPE YOU ARE AS BLESSED AS WE ARE. OUR FAMILY IS ALL GROWN NOW AND SCATTERED HERE 'N THERE. THIS OLD HOUSE ECHO'S YET WITH ALL THE GROWING PAINS OF OUR MIXED FAMILY. PLUS WE ALSO HAD SOME FOSTER CHILDREN WHO LIVED WITH US AT DIFFERENT TIMES THROUGH THE YEARS. = OH YES, ANOTHER OF OUR BLESSINGS HAVE BEEN ALL THE WONDERFUL FURRY FRIENDS WE HAVE HAD...

WE JOKE ABOUT WHEN WE GET TO HEAVEN WE WILL BE OVERWHELMED WITH ALL THE FURRY PEOPLE WE HAVE LOVED AND WHO HAVE GONE ON BEFORE US. AT ONE TIME WE HAD 7 CATS AND 4 DOGS... HAVE 2 CATS NOW. WE ADOPTED ONE OF THEM AND THE OTHER ONE ADOPTED US. WE ARE GOING TO DINNER NOW TO CELEBRATE OUR DAY...

SINCERELY,

BONNIE & DON PAULLEY

Dear Bonnie and Don:

Happy anniversary!

What a wonderful story.

We'll be celebrating our 44th on 7 July.

We also appreciate your acknowledgment of being "overwhelmed with all the furry people"; it's truly a beautiful vision of heaven.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
