Monday April 13, 1987

24 years ago on a Monday morning, Allan and I wed. Why a Monday morning, you ask. Well, a dear friend, (that I worked with) in a joking way, told Allan that we shouldn't mess up a good weekend, just wait till Monday. We followed his direction and had a little private ceremony at 11:00 on a Monday. Sadly, that dear friend passed away 2 years later. Every year on our anniversary, we always remember Rick and make a toast in his memory.

Our marriage has been so very blessed with friends. Some I brought into the marriage with me, some Allan brought, and some we gained together. These long time friends, new friends, even my cyber friends, is what has held us together this past year. Like I said at the beginning. Allan and I are blessed, with each other, beautiful family and special friends.

One special friend, surprised us this afternoon with a wonderful pound cake. Thank you, Carolyn, for this wonderfully delicious cake. No, I did not eat all that by myself, I've been good, I've just had 2 pieces tonight, but then the night isn't over yet is it?

Happy Anniversary! You have been blessed with Allan. I remember that day very well (I wonder why?)
I don't know who's have more ups & downs, but a least you have a man that cares deeply. You are a lucky gal Shelia. Love you both dearly.

Allan is the luckiest man I know to have Shelia.*
