FC: 50 Years in the Making Golden Wedding Anniversary 1959-2009 | Donald Richard and Carol Murawski Zeiler
1: 10.03.59 | Half a century ago, they say, A wonderful marriage began that day. Two beautiful people joined as one, And worked together to make living fun. We celebrate now those fifty years; and raise our glass and give three cheers: To partners for life in both work and play, It's our pleasure to share your golden day.
3: 10.03.59 | On your joyful wedding day, You began a brand new life. Friends and family gave their gifts To joyful husband, blissful wife. But the greatest gift you ever received, A gift from heaven above, Is love forever, ending never, Everlasting love. You shared life's joy and pleasure; You had plenty of that, it's true. But love is the real treasure For your spouse and you. And when life handed you a challenge, As it does to one and all, Your love held you steady And never let you fall. Your wedding day was full of joy; Tomorrow you cannot see. But one thing's sure for the two of you: The best is yet to be.
