6: The moment we first met | On September 23, 1961 I went to Harmony Inn with some of my buddies to dance. While there I spotted a young woman that seemed to be bothered by a young sailor so I decided to intervene. When I saw her come in I said to myself that is the pretties girl I have ever seen, so I asked her to dance and we danced the night away. I wanted to get to know her better. She told me her name was Sue and I told her my name was Phillip. I asked her if I could see her home and she said no, however she did give me her phone number. I proceeded to call her often. I became so infatuated I was having trouble at work and the guys teased me and called me a love sick calf and said "you better marry that gal." Finally on October 7 she said she would go out with me. It was then that I met her children (William 4 years old and Debora 19 months old) and fell in love with them, they were so sweet. Debbie actually put her arms out to me after haven eaten a plate of spaghetti that she had dumped all over her and I did pick her up it was such a natural feeling. Bill was a little more cautious at first, but when I got down on the floor to play with him he was ok. At this first date Sue told me her name was Mable, however I told her I preferred to call her Sue. And I also told her Phillip was my middle name and my name was Charles. One thing I wanted to find out was, does she know how to cook? So I asked her if I bought the fixings would she cook me dinner and she said yes. Then I knew she was the gal for me because she could cook! I started asking her to marry me and she kept saying no, then one day as we were driving to my sister's house she said "were you serious about getting married?" I said "you bet", and she said "yes". I was so excited I almost drove off the road. So on July 25, 1962 I married my best friend.

8: The moment we first met | On September 23, 1961 my girlfriend talked me into going out with her to dance. We went to the Harmony Inn known for its great music and dance area, so I was told. While there I danced with several young men and one was very persistent, that is when I met Phillip. He noticed and came to ask me to dance, he told me his name was Phillip and me having two small children at home was not about to give a stranger my actual name, said the first name that popped into my head which was Sue. If I had known I would be stuck with it, I would have picked something else. After that Phillip monopolized my time on the dance floor. I found he was a very good dancer. We talked and he wanted to know where I lived I would not tell him however I did give him my phone number. Phillip would call me almost every night till I finally decided to accept a date with him on October 7th. When he came to pick me up I told him my real name and why I used a false name and he said he preferred to call me Sue. He then told me Phillip was actually his middle name andCharles was his actual first name. I think I fell in love with Charles when I saw him with my children. He would actually pay more attention to them than me when he would come over and they really needed that, he seemed to love them right at the start and how can you not love someone who loves your children. We were married in Oregon on July 25, 1962 and it hasn't always been a bed of roses. However we stuck it out through good and bad and now we are at a place where it is so sweet, and I know I love Charles more each and every day. He is my Soul mate, my friend, my lover and my everything.

20: Knowing you will be with me in all my tomorrows, makes my today so wonderful. | 25th
23: Like a rugged lighthouse on the rocks Withstanding stormy weather Your love has shone throughout 50 years Stronger now than ever
25: I don't know when it started, Or how it all began. But God created families, As only our Lord can. He was teaching what it means, To love, honor, and obey. He wanted a strong bond, That we don't see too much today. He wanted someone to hold us, And show respect for others. He wanted someone who'd be gentle, And so he created mothers. He wanted someone strong, A support filled with love. And so he created fathers, Sent from heaven up above. Brothers and sisters came next, With that, an instant friend. Someone to look up to, Someone on who to depend. When he put them all together, He was amazed at what he'd done. He had created a family, Mother, father, daughter, son. But look at the family, Created by only two. How many we've become, And all because of you. We have a lot to be thankful for, The memories through the years. The many times together, Full of laughter, full of tears. I don't know where we'd be today, If it weren't for the two of you. To show us strength, support, and love, Like only the two of you can do.
27: The treasure that you value most isn't jewels, silver or gold, but the love you have for each other has never grown old!
29: For better or worse, through thick and thin, You've been there side by side Sharing the laughter and the tears Through life's uncertain ride. None of us know what the future holds For both of you, Dad and Mom But this we're sure that you'll find The best is yet to come
