Happy 60th Wedding Anniversary Mom and Dad!

My parents were married in Aurora, Ontario on April 4, 1953. They have travelled the world since then and have 5 children, 14 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren with another on the way in May. The past couple of years have been challenging health-wise, especially for my mother. She is currently confined to bed and receives nursing care at home. She would have loved another family reunion on this special day, but my four brothers and I were able to spend time with Mom and Dad in December and January. My brother Philip and his family are their main caregivers in Mexico.
Mom and Dad have been firm in their commitment to serve God all their days. Their strong faith has sustained them in good and bad times. They have also been firm in their commitment to each other and have taken their marriage vows seriously.

I, David/Elizabeth, take you Elizabeth/David, to be my wife/husband,

to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, 

for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; 

from this day forward until death do us part.

And so they continue their journey together a day at a time, which is what all of us 
must do whether we have been married 1 year, 10, 30 or 60.

Here is a 2 minute video in their honour with much love. 


  1. Happy anniversary to your parents. Now, that's true love.

  2. What a beautiful tribute Ruth. Congratulations to them!

  3. What a beautiful video of a loving couple - and the whole family. Nice that you took the time to compose this lovely tribute, Ruth.
    Happy anniversary to David and Elizabeth on this special day.

  4. Congratualtions. You or somebody did a really great job on the slideshow.

  5. Thank you for your comments. @AC, Thanks. I put this show together with a template from iMovie on my Mac. It allows you to add music from your iTunes collection.
