FC: Happy 25th Anniversary
1: Mom & Dad | An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today, the memories of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow.
2: The Early Years | "I can remember when you guys first started dating in High School. I remember thinking you were fun and sweet together, and even let little sis hang out with you... well sometimes." ~Stella~
3: "You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how." ~Rhett Butler~
5: "Lucky I'm in love with my best friend"
6: I Do
8: On this Day, August 8, 1987, at 3:00 pm, Christie Jill Winner and Shane Robert Salmon were united in marriage at First Christian Church in Columbia, MO "You're the meaning in my life you're the inspiration. You bring feeling to my life you're the inspiration. Wanna have you near me I wanna have you hear me sayin': No one needs you more than I need you."
9: 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 Corinthians 13: 4-8
10: Congratulations and may God continue to bless you both. It does take two to make a marriage work and with God helping, you can’t go wrong. I’m very proud of who my son has become and I feel Jill has had a very important part in that. Thanks for the grandchildren and for what you both do and are for me. Love, ~Mom S.~
12: "Mom & Dad, out of all the things you have taught me, the most important has been how to love unconditionally. I hope to one day be able to say that I have been married to the one I love for 25 years. You are my inspiration and my role models in love and life. Happy Anniversary, I love you bunches! " ~Ryan~ | "My number one fan & my coach. Thank you for 25 years of guidance, encouragement, discipline, and love. You both have taught me so many things I still have yet to realize. I know that my children will feel the same kind of love & encouragement, because of what I've learned from you. Here's to 25 incredible years!" ~Kari~ We love because He first loved us ~1 John 4:19
13: "As soon as I saw you, I knew an adventure was going to happen." ~Winnie the Pooh~
14: "It has been fun watching my brother become the man, husband, dad, coach, gray haired guy he is today. It's also been nice, Jill, having you for a sister. I always wanted one of those! You guys have always been a great couple and you have raised some great kids! Here's to 25 more years!" ~Stella~
15: "To think this started back in high school! 5 kids & 25 years later, it is still right. You set the example for us. We love you both very much and wish you another 25 great years! Happy Anniversary!" ~Lynn, Daryl & Devin too~

18: "Here's to a fantastic couple who has done it all so well -- raising 5 beautiful children, mentoring & coaching hundreds of kids, doing all those DIY projects! God has richly blessed you both. Here's to 25 more wonderful years." Love & God Bless, ~Mom W~
19: FIVE kids, 25 years later and the world is still in one piece!!! Lol. If I get married I have learned from you how a marriage works. Thank you Dad and Mom for all of the things you have taught me (now does that mean all of the teaching is done? JK). You two are the example of a great couple that I look up to. I love you both! ~Jay~
20: Happy 25th anniversary! I wouldn't want any other parents but you. I'm so happy to be your son. ~Jeffy~
21: "Jill & Shane... I can not believe it has been 25 year!!!! I remember when you said you were getting married. And, I remember thinking you were too young. You may have been young, but it was the right thing for you. Clearly, someone had a hand in getting the two of you together. It was truly meant to be!!!! You have been through a lot in your 25 years. 25 years of marriage in itself is an amazing feat. Add to that raising 5 smart, responsible, beautiful children puts you both over the top. You both have given yourselves to your children and it shows. What lovely adults they are becoming. I will always have the utmost respect and admiration for you both. You are amazing. Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" ~Jan~
22: "We have watched the two of you finish college, bring five wonderful children into this world, have teaching careers, move across the state, move children from place to place, and in between all this compete in lots of sports as both coach and parents – all in all “pretty darn impressive.” ~Uncle Bob & Aunt MaryAnn~
23: "Everybody deserves somebody who makes them look forward to tomorrow."
25: True love stories never have endings. ~Richard Bach~
