60 years ago today, at 2:00 pm,
Mark Yoder and Alene Wert were married.
This is the fourth anniversary that
Mama has remembered and thought about that day
—  without him.
He was an old romantic. 
Never let their anniversary pass without recognizing it. 
(He even celebrated the anniversary of their first date
when he was 16 and she was 17) 
He was always looking for an occasion to send a card.

It’s hard not to miss a man like that.

  3. That’s beautiful. By the way, did you know that my dad passed away two weeks ago? We had a number of intense weeks, but a very beautiful experience of being there when he left this earth. He is GREATLY missed. He and my step mother were married 26 years and had such a beautiful love relationship.

  4. Your momma and daddy are/were special!!!

  5. How nice to see their picture from so long ago.  It will be our 45 anniversary and I will remember it fondly.  Don was a romantic, too.  Oh, the sweet memories your Mom and I will always treasure.
