Happy Anniversary, Al and Kathy!

My brother, Al, and his wife, Kathy, have just celebrated their 25th Wedding Anniversary. Al and Kathy's marriage had a bit of a rough start: They married in September and my mother passed away in October. The first baby came along in February and my father passed away the following November. So many life-changing events in such a short period of time, and they were so young! The odds were long on this pair . . .

Yet here we are! These two have somehow figured out how to make it work, while tackling life's challenges and raising three children. Today I heard Kathy call my brother “her best friend.” Al, a quiet man, just looked at Kathy with eyes that conveyed a world of affection . . .


God bless them both!

Bless them indeed. It is tough enough when you first get married - trying to figure out how to live, love, and like this constant person in your life. Add to that the huge life events - they are a special breed indeed. Congratulations to Al and Kathy.
