Through The Years

Seventy-Five to be exact! This is Dennis's lovely mother Ora Lee it is her birthday today. She grew up in Idaho then migrated down to Utah where she met a handsome young man from Monroe. I guess you could say it was love at first site and they have been together ever since .

It is hard to talk about one with out the other they really go hand in hand.
The love they show for each other and the family is truly an inspiration for us all. Her devotion to her faith, her husband and all her family is amazing. She was a New Born Intensive Care nurse for many years flying out to the four corner states transporting premature babies back to the University of Utah Hospital. She put in long hard hours helping save such tiny lives. And still enjoys taking care of some of her newest additions to the family tree!

This picture was taken at their Fiftieth Wedding Anniversary with some of the great-grandchildren I think I have lost count as to how many have been added and soon to be added what a legacy!
This is the all the grandchildren and some spouses .
And of course Little Miss Sunshine who lights up her life one day of the week when they spend time together. Happy Birthday Mom you have been there throughout they years for me you have helped me through some hard times and I thank you , love Clydene.
