Dear Mother and Daddy,

God says marriage is honorable. Your 70 years together epitomize an honorable marriage. This joyful journey began in your youth; you have gracefully advanced in years as one, reflecting the sentiments of Psalm 34:3, “Oh, magnify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together!”
You have modeled for us the features of a Christian marriage — love, kindness, sweetness, loyalty, trust, respect and faithfulness. We thank you, we honor you, and we love you.
