Marriage is an important bond between two people
Below are poems and quotes from people with
Healthy Relationships. Special thanks to Edwin & Marry Alice, as a shining light with over 63 years of marriage. My wife, Alice, and I have been together for 41 years and the Speed's, are an inspiration to us. We pray this tribute to love helps you and your marriage, too...
An inspiration to love...
Just in case you're keeping score,
The happy years add up to forth-four.
These were years of wedded joy,
The closest thing to heaven for your big boy.
I hope we can now add to the score,
At least six years and hopefully more!
Thirty two years have flown by fast,
with many found memories of you in the past, of your love and kindness all those days, of your smile, those kisses, and winning ways.
Now I pray for many more years together, with you at my side in all sorts of weather.

Though It May See Light Years Away,
Sept. The 28th was our special day..
The very special day when we became one,
To share all the Joys and join in the fun.
Alas There were some sad and painful times too,
But in retrospect they are very few.
Now with one year to go to make fifty
and my pretty bride still looks niffty.
Love Edwin 9-28-2006
Lots of people in the past said: "to ensure your love will last"
"Give your love a kiss each day and be loving and kind in every way."
Remember the seat of love is in the heart. Mine has beat only for you from the start.
Love as always Edwin 2-14-08
Not many couples get to Fifty Three, We are the lucky one as you can see...
What great times we have had,
Most of them were good, some were bad.
Now looking back kind of makes me sad,
Cause I can't be with you for 53 more.
But I'll cherish the future ones-
No matter whats in store!
Lots of things change when people grow old
most gain weight and lose height like stand in a hole
Some don't like to travel anymore
or waltz with their partner on a dance floor
Instead some treasure time spend with their love
Watching clouds or feeling a gentle rain from above
Or taking my Mary to church and thanking God
Then off to home, sausage biscuits and a walk in the yard.

Please forgive my forgetful way,
For not remembering your special day.
For on this day that you were born,
An angel sounded a golden horn.
To inform everyone in the world,
That this is a very special girl!
What a shame we all get old!
It even makes some old goats stray from the fold.
It also makes others orget the time of day
All they want to do is having a roll in the hay.
Some old folks forget what others say
I must admit something I forgot
To say to you that I love you a lot.
On that special day when my lov should shine
Belately, will you be my valentine?
Love Edwin 02-14
