30 Years Ago Today….

September 8, 2009

Richard and I were married at 2:00 PM in Arnprior, Ontario.  In true Richard fashion, he recently quipped that it just feels like fifty!

I haven’t really posted any health updates, but I would ask you to send some special prayers up for Richard.  We are going for a third blood test to see if his platelets are over 100,000 and if they are, he will begin a Phase 1 clinical trial tomorrow where he will take a daily pill which will block the production of specific proteins by cancer cells on the cell surface.  If he is able to participate in the study, it will in no way be curative, but with luck might give him more time and as we all know, time is a gift.

So enjoy your day and count your blessings today as we count our’s.  Here’s a little snapshot from our lives, thirty years ago….

    Congratulations on your 30th. It’s the same weather in the Valley today as it was 30 years ago.

    Happy 30th Anniversary Jane and Richard! Thinking of you as always, but even more so today. Hope you take the opportunity to spoil yourselves in some special way.

    Lots of love from the Sods

    Happy anniversary guys. I think it might have been one of my last altar boy activities. Figures that you did not tip me but Rich do not worry I am offsetting it against the fees we owe you on the dowry. Think I am still way ahead.

    All kidding aside and Happy Anniversary both of you

    John and Jane

    Belated 30th Anniversary Greetings!
    Congrats to one of the most fun-loving couples we know! I remember the wedding day well in the ‘prior! Such an honour to be in the wedding party. Seems like just yesterday and now our kids are old enough to get married! Know that you inspire us and we hold our friendship with you so closely in our hearts.
    Lots of love,
