Can I ask a favor?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Lane Realty Eatonton, GA Lake Sinclair, Milledgeville, 706-485-9668 GREC# 169695

In a week my parents will be married 59 years.  They got married May 25th 1964.  I planned them a wonderful party for their 50th and it was a surprise.  All their siblings showed up and surprised them at church and then we had an afternoon cookout at their house.  It was a really good day.  

Time marches on and I'm not sure that either of them could handle a house full of people for ALL day again, but I'd like to help them celebrate a little more with a mailbox full of cards.  So would you please send my mom and dad a card for their anniversary?

Hi Tammy- consider it done.  I love this post and the photos as well.

Tammy Lankford,

My parents didn't have a reception or wedding cake.  My dad was home for just a few days and my mom had just graduated from college, they got married and then went back to New Jersey where my dad was stationed.  A few months later my dad was sent out of a ship and my mom came home where she was the next year when I was born.  I got to meet my daddy when I was 5 days old.

Update! The card went out on Saturday the 20th so hopefully it will arrive in time Tammy Lankford,

Tammy Lankford,

Kat Palmiotti thanks and I'm sure they will enjoy them even if they arrive a day or two after.  We used to get mail from California in 4 days, but it's been a while since we got anything from there.

I can do that, so amazing that they have been together for so long, that just doesn't happen as much with modern-day relationships.  My parents have been together for over 50 years and I tried to throw them a surprise anniversary party and everyone from all over the country was going to attend, but then covid ruined everything, haha.

May 19, 2023 07:02 AM
Tammy Lankford,

that's terrible and it ruined a lot.  My dad's 80th birthday would have come with a big party but instead a tiny immediate family celebration.

As others have written, of course. Card is addressed and will be in the mail on Monday, May 22, 2023.  How cool to be together that long. A testament to your parents.

Tammy, just seeing your post, and sure a card won't make it there for their anniversary.   I just looked, and don't have an anniversary card on hand to drop off right now.  Leaving in the morning out of town.   Hope they have a wonderful anniversary!
