A Valentine Love Story

Valentine Day seems like a perfect day to share this picture of my Mom and Dad.  They were married May 5, 1940, in the Christian church in Winslow, Indiana, Mom’s hometown.

On October 5, 2006,  Betsy and I took Mom and Dad up to Winslow for a visit.  While we were there we went to the Christian church.  It was wonderful to see Mom and Dad in the sanctuary where they had been married 66 years and 5 months before.  The smile on Mom’s face says she was glad to be back there as well.

Kelly and Chuck

When we visited my daughter Kelly and her husband, Chuck, last month, they took us to New York’s Whirlpool State Park along the Niagara River below the falls.  The park overlooks the river’s Great Whirlpool.  The whirlpool is formed when the large volume of water coming over the falls is constricted by the walls of the gorge through which the river flows.

While we were at the park I took this picture of Kelly and Chuck as they stood along the rail at the edge of the gorge overlooking the whirlpool.

The picture on which this drawing was based is shown below.
