Golden Anniversary

Ray and Nancy Kirby
50th Wedding Anniversary

We were so young but so in love on September 12, 1969
and after 50 years, 2 children and 5 grandchildren,
we are more in love today.

I have loved our life together and look forward
to what is in store for the next 50.

Love always,


50th Anniversary

Bill and Sandra Patterson
August 29, 1969 – August 29, 2019

When I close my eyes I still remember that first date we had at Huntingdon College where I met you.

We have traveled many roads since then and I wouldn’t change one moment if you ask me too. Side by side we have crossed each bridge together.  Hand in hand we have made it by his grace. Through the years your strength has been my companion. There is no one that could ever take your place.

I couldn’t have made this journey without you and there has been many times your love has brought me through. We have been down the road of life together. Yes, we have gone a mile or two but I couldn’t have made this journey without you.

Sandra, I’m glad I made this journey with you. I thank God for you, our family and our friends.  Happy 50th anniversary! 

I love you,


Happy B-Day

"This mama has prayed for both of them every day of their lives and will continue to pray for them to have successful careers, but that they would remember their country roots, practice humility and show kindness to others. I believe they’ve achieved it." (Pictured with Chris are his parents Dale and Rhonda)
