Cut this a couple of years ago for my parents 60 wedding anniversary. Dad recently passed away but Mom goes on the best she can . What a blessed person I am to have had their love and guidance for so many years.
This portrait was made by Charles Deering from a picture taken at a family gathering ( I believe my wife is the photographer).
Thanks for looking and for allowing me to share my parents with you.

They look like wonderful people, and I’m sure the portrait gives your mother great memories now that Dad is not with her. Wonderful project.
