The more you invest in a marriage
the more valuable it becomes.  amy grant

There we were on August 10, 1974.
Today is our 37th wedding anniversary.

A successful marriage requires falling in love many times,
always with the same person.

So take a look at this photo of my Strawn first cousins.

And now let's talk about marriage.

Front row (l to r):  John (*Susie) 30 yrs.  Kent (*Sindy) 35 yrs. 
 Ellen (*Dennis) 37 yrs  Dean (Jane) 28 yrs.  Phil (*Carmen) 46 yrs.
