Legacy of Love
John & Norma Celebrating 60 Years of Marriage
These two love birds are my precious grandparents! This past June my sister got married so we took a couple minutes during the wedding day to sneak in some anniversary pictures for their upcoming 60th anniversary!
They met in first grade and went to grade school together. Norma moved away in high school and several years later they met again at a Campus Crusades meeting and two months after that John got down on one knee and proposed! My grandpa is a true cowboy. He has always loved farming and animals. My grandma has been the best example of a help mate and has selflessly supported him in all their adventures. As a kid I saw my grandparents as a fun place to visit, I remember going out to Arizona to the ranch where they lived. Where I learned to ride horses, make homemade ice cream, drive a golf cart, and make all sorts of crafts with my grandma. As an adult I see and appreciate the legacy they are leaving. I see my grandparents still faithfully loving each other and choosing to put each other first. I see how marriage is a mixture of fun and hard, tears and laughter, adventures and struggles. And I have never seen anything so beautiful. These two people are faithful. They chose to love each other 60 years ago, for better or for worse, and they are still choosing this today. They are not perfect, but that is the beauty, two imperfect people refusing to give up on each other choosing to be faithful.
In honor of this special day I asked them if they would be so willing to answer some questions!
