Their wedding was in Iran (Persia) in 1943.

Add 15 more to this number for the more accurate count of their legacy which continues to grow.





So raise your glasses and toast to my mom and pop for all these years that God has been faithful to them!

Second through fifth photos were all taken by Jeremy Leffel our photographer and good friend at Andrew and Katie’s wedding.

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. Happy Anniversary to your mom and pop, Ellen! Raising my coffee mug to them! They are so blessed, and all their offspring are blessed to have them as the head of the family. May God give them even more years together!

  2. Sixty-nine years! Wonderful!!! Congratulations to them with their big, beautiful, genuine smiles! Your Dad looks like he’s a real pistol! I love the headdress on your Mom’s wedding veil. Very regal!!! Great pictures, Ellen!

  3. Now that’s worth celebrating! It’s such a blessing and encouragement to see long lasting commitment modeled. My parents only made it to 60 when my mom died but my grandparents celebrated 71 years before passing to their reward. Wishing your mom and dad good health and much joy!

  4. I toast to your happy parents. What a rich heritage of love they have given to your family.
    I love these photos of them…simply demonstrates their love for people.
