Grandparents – Then and Later

Two people make a commitment to build a life together and stay together, overcoming challenges as they come.  Four different long-lasting marriages.  Eight people who didn’t give up.  Many descendants have benefitted from their examples.

Each year of marriage, each anniversary, can be celebrated for the success that it is, for the selflessness and compromise and sacrifice it requires.  Long marriages can be celebrated in big ways.  I thank God for grandparents who made our parents together, stayed together and were examples for us.

Here they are at the beginnings of their lives together and toward the end of them.  Paired together in a grouping for our family – first shown in black and white and then in color where available.

A  long marriage is a great legacy to leave your descendants.
