My parents in their flower garden
At my parents’ 60th wedding anniversary celebrations at the beginning of May, we children ended our readers’ theatre and slide show by thanking our parents for the many things they had done for us. Of course, we couldn’t include all the things we are grateful for but we mentioned some key things. We thanked Mom and Dad for………
Providing a warm and supportive family atmosphere and being such good role models for us by………

and in doing so teaching us the value and importance of a close family.
