Fifty years ago today my parents were married. They continue to live in the house that my siblings and I grew up in, in an old suburb of Toronto. Wonderful and decent people, they are always a pleasure to return home to.
Fifty years of marriage is impressive in so many ways, but their example of love and patience and goodwill is what stands out for me. I’ve been married for eight years and I regularly think of how my parents have conducted their relationship — during my childhood and on-going now — when my wife and I hit a stumbling block or have an important decision to make.
They are a great couple and an amazing example. Much love and congratulations Mom and Dad – well done!
