Sixty Years, And Still Going

In the scheme of overall existence, sixty years really isn't that long. It is a small blip of the ongoing movie picture of time; however, to humans and our time on earth - sixty years is a long time. With the average life expectancy today being 78.4 years; sixty years is 76.5% of the average life span.

That is a significant number.

I was fortunate to be able to celebrate my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary with them before they passed on; and last weekend, I had the pleasure to celebrate Robyn's grandparents 60th wedding anniversary.

Celebrating these milestones is an experience that not everyone has the opportunity to participate in and to be able see two people, after all those years, still being able to laugh and love together is incredible.

Dave and Betty Coon should be role models to us all. They have lived through wars, peace time, bad economic downturns, time of happiness, and times of great sadness; however, through all that they have remained together and experienced countless memories.

Congrats to Betty and Dave; your milestone humbles us all.
