On this day 63 years ago, Marion May Richter and Gordon James Venske decided to get real and make it official.
Every day I look at their photo and marvel at their epic love story. The commitment they made to each other — and continue to honor — before God, friends, and family is an inspiration.
I think of all the storms they weathered together and feel such pride!
And so today we should all raise a glass in honor of their marriage. May their caring compassion, concrete commitment, and classy compromises, continue to be cradled in Christ’s loving kindness.
I love you, Grandma & Grandpa! Thank you for showing me how it’s done!
