69 years ago, two babes were born.
51 years ago, they found each other.
49 years ago, they had a daughter.
42 years ago, they had a son.
29 years ago, they became grandparents.
Since then four more times.
19 years ago, one passed on leaving the other with a broken heart.
5 days ago, the other passed on and joined again with her love.
Today, our family will bury the second half of our beginning, and continue to nurture the
tree they planted together 51 years ago.
Written by Jean Gobbel for her grandmother,
Thora Wassel, in July, 1997.
