S: Christmas 2011

BC: Happy 50th Anniversary Geemom and Geedad Mom and Dad Pat and Jack We love you! | Words by John Diehl Book created by Becky Gilgour

FC: "Through the Years" | The Diehl Family

1: Fifty Years Ago, on this very day A couple started out the usual way

3: Jack and Pat walked down a long aisle together Vowing to stay through worse and through better

4: But we will slow down and look back through the years And think of the great times and even the tears

6: As we sit here together 50 years having past One thing that is clear; it’s gone by quite fast

8: So, it started with Pam - the young family’d begun

9: As the kids kept on coming Jack never threatened to run

11: When Matthew arrived things got real rough They examined their brood, and knew they’d each had enough

12: The school years blew by at a frightening pace Each kid doing well and finding their place

14: Homework and sports, finding time to just play The kids in the house, it seemed might forever stay

16: But grow up we did, each finding our groove To Hopkins and Salisbury and DC we did move

19: But the college years proved to be only fleeting The girls got on with life, future husbands they were meeting

20: Pam plunged in first | though we lost Chuck too fast | Jenny and Ron down at college

21: were having a blast

22: Don Palmour came next a tall Texan in town More nuptials soon followed Pam in her gown

23: Becky had started the grandkids parade Though naming her grandparents turned into quite a charade Geema and Geedad, yeesh what can I say Though each of the kids use those names to this day

24: Jenny and Ron then got into the game Ryan showed up, things would never be the same

25: Over the years arrived Abbie then James entered the room I hear that their fourth is coming real soon

26: But wait just a minute I need to slow down John and Matt had by now moved back into town

27: Though slow starters at this, they then both stepped up Sally said her “I Do” and Zina became Mrs. Cup

29: The grandkids kept coming and coming and coming Beautiful Anjela from Russia hit the ground running Then twins, my God twins, Jamie and Erin did arrive

31: Liam eased in but with Tanner, we need Aunt Joan to survive?

32: It’s all starting again as Patrick and Becky are together And like their Geemom and Geedad they will handle whatever Grammy Pammy time is not all that far I am sure Great grandchildren yeesh, how will you endure?

33: Fifty years of marriage deserves more than just dinner So the family has talked and ideas started to simmer After much work a plan was worked out over the phone Though details are not quite written in stone

34: Suffice it to say, we are planning a trip We’ll get a big house we cant fit on a ship

35: Twenty-one of us will go to the beach in late June Weve checked it all out; theyll be plenty of room

36: And so just to close before we can eat We just wanted to tell you what we think of this feat

37: A life spent together is something to treasure Family friends and memories you just cannot measure
