Forty Five Years

Forty Five years ago.......that was 1967 and four years before I was born.  That seems like many years ago.  There have been so many changes since that year.

Forty five years ago Lyndon B Johnson was president, 
and since that time,  we have had eight more.....

The FIRST Super Bowl was played.....

 The Worlds First Heart Transplant operation in South Africa by Dr. Christiaan N Barnard....

Thurgood Marshall becomes the first black justice on the
Supreme Court.......

 The first ATM ( Automatic Teller Machine ) is put into service in Barclays Bank in London....

The first Boeing 737 takes its maiden flight.....

Forty five years ago.....Mom and Dad were married.

It has been almost five months since we lost Dad.  It still seems like yesterday.  But as much as I miss him, I can't imagine how Mom feels.  May 19th, they would have been celebrating 45 years of marriage.  45 years of love, commitment, and blessings.  They were best friends. But forty fives years of love is not easily forgotten.....and even though Dad is gone, his love lives on through mom, his children, and grandchildren.

 True love stories never have endings.  ~Richard Bach

Forty Five years......is a long time.
