They won’t hear or see this. Dad died in 1994 (wow- has it been that long?), and Mom has alzheimers and, while she’s highly functional, she doesn’t remember much.
But they brought forth 5 children who loved them (four survive today). They were married on Armistice Day in 1947, and they stayed together ever after. Here’s to them, and to all the couples like them.
I love you both, Mom and Dad.
