A Lovely Day

April 27, 1963

They have hardly changed at all!

Fifty years is a long time, no matter how you cut it!  And today, our friends June and Roger, a beloved part of our choir family, cut the cake at their fiftieth wedding anniversary party.  First, they renewed their wedding vows at a lovely ceremony at which the choir sang some of June’s favorites.  Coincidentally, they were some of my favorites too.  I’m always really, really glad whenever we sing “I Was Glad,” and this was a very glad occasion.  “Laudate Dominum” is, I think, one of the most beautiful things ever.  The choir sing exquisitely, despite there seeming to be a very high pollen count in the Cathedral.  I knew this because quite a few of them were seeming to have allergies.  There were hankies out and a lot of sniffles.

The top of the cake!  The rest was already eaten by this time!

Great job on this blog. Excellent.
Good photos.
I got a really good photo of Molly and Charlie (Grandchildren) We'll probably give copies to J & R when we visit.

To me, it was a happy/sad occasion.

I loved the music also.
