This is a picture of my parents celebrating their Golden Wedding on January 3rd 1998. My mum and her twin brother were born on May 12th 1926. When they started primary school they met a little boy who, by some strange coincidence, was also born on May 12th 1926. The three became firm friends and thus the twins became "triplets." This little boy was to become none other than my father. A real life fairy tale!
Mum and dad married and had 53 very happy years together, although dad suffered extreme health problems from the age of 48. My uncle died very suddenly in August 2000 and my dad died on Christmas Day a few months later at the age of 74. Mum found it very difficult and she missed my dad and her brother greatly, until her own death just before Christmas 2007. They had been together in total for 69 years - a fabulous love story, don't you agree?
So this post is to just pay tribute to my wonderful parents, who I love and still miss very much, and also to my uncle. I hope they are having a fabulous birthday party in Heaven!
