S: Happy 50th Anniversary!!!
BC: "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.." 1 Cor. 13:4-8

12: Dear Mom and Dad, Congrats on 50 years of marriage! I am thankful that you have always been involved in our lives. You have been a blessing to my family through all of your love and support; babysitting...soccer games...day trips...meals You have supported us through prayer when we needed it most. You have always exemplified sacrifice and service.Looking back through the years, my fondest memories are our trips to NY state, Vermont and Wildwood, although the drive was probably the biggest adventure! I love you! Praying God continues to bless you and that I will have the privilege of being a grandparent just like you. Love, Donna
14: Mom and Dad, Just wanted to write a little note to say Thank You for everything that you have done for me. I will always have many memories of the things that we have done together. Trips to the Shore, Inlet, Vermont and Florida will always hold a special place within me. Mom, I am so grateful that you had the patience to take me driving when I had my permit. For some reason, I was not as nervous driving with you as I would of been driving with Dad. Dad, I am glad to have been able to spend a lot of time outdoors together. Getting up at the crack of dawn to go fishing for Lake Trout or to go hiking miles looking for deer. Mom and Dad, I wish that we were a lot closer to where we could still spend more time together but we all know that life isn't always what or how you wish it was. I just want the both of you to know that I love you both so very much and wish you both many more wonderful years together. Happy 50th Anniversary!!!!! Love always, Doug

I cherish the memories I have with you very much! Thank you for all of your love and support. May God bless you as you continue your journey together. Much love, Diane

Thank you so much for ALWAYS being there for us kids through the years and for all the irreplaceable memories: NY, fishing, the Wildlife Center, Van Saun Park, birthday parties, and fun times in general.

28: Dear Grandma B and Pop, There are so many memories that I remember with you two, but the one memory that really sticks out is when I come over your house and go to Van Saun Park or the Wild Life Center. I love to see all the animals, and spend time with you! I have always loved going on small journeys with you. It is so fun to explore the outdoors. Congratulations, on 50 years of marriage! I hope you have at least 25 more years! I love you and hope you have a great 50 year anniversary! love, Maddi
30: Dear Gramma B and Pop, I appreciate when Gramma B makes us great meals and treats and doesn't expect anything back and BillPop takes me out on fishing trips. I remember sitting on the beach, feeding the ducks and watching the sunset with you at the lake. Also, going to Van Saun Park and feeding the birds off the sticks. I wish you a great anniversary and hope you have many more happy ones from now on. Love, Katia | KATIA
33: Grandma and Pop Pop, I want to say Happy 50th Anniversary to the both of you. I love you both so much. I have a lot of times that we have spent together that are very close in my heart. Here are a few of my favorite times with each of you. When Pop Pop brought me to the church to see all the trains. Another time with Pop Pop is when we went to the Nature Center to go and visit all the animals and take a nice walk. Some of the special times that I spent with Grandma are when we would sit at the table and play Dominos, Uno and Stay Alive. Another time is when Grandma and I would go to the store together and then we made some cookies. One of my favorite and first stuff ed animals that I was given was from Grandma and Pop Pop. It is a little puppydog , whose name is Puppy and still can not sleep without it and I cherish with all my heart. I wish we were able to spend more time with you and wish that we could see you more but understand that it is hard for that happen. But the time that we do spend together makes it even more special and I enjoy it even more. One thing that I do a lot is I always ask throughout the year when are we going to go and see Grandma and Pop again. I know that we go out either Thanksgiving or Christmas and I start to talk about going around March cause I just miss them a lot!!!! I love you a lot Grandma and Pop Pop... Hope you have a wonderful Anniversary Love always, Nicholas
34: Dear Pop and Grandma B, I love you. I like going fishing with Pop and going through the woods at the Wildlife Center and looking for deer at our house and at the lake. I had fun at Cabella's with you. Grandma B, it's fun when you swim with me at The Bird and the Hoitsmas. It makes me laugh when bubbles come out of your bathing suit in the hot tub. There are lots of other fun things we've done together that I can't remember. But I want to congratulate you on your 50th anniversary! I love you, Ansley
37: Dear Gramma B and Pop, I appreciate that when we're together, you 'spoil' us. Gramma B makes special pancakes and Bill Pop takes me to town for ice cream. I remember sitting by the campfire toasting marshmallows and the special trip to NYC to see the Empire State Building. I hope that I get to see you both real soon. Love, Jack
40: A cousin is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost.
42: In December 2010 we had to watch our never sit still dad and Pop go through open heart surgery. We praise God that you keep on getting better!
