Today is my Mom and Dad's 30th anniversary. There are few couples I know, even those who have been married 50 or 60 years, that have lived and loved the way they do. Even though Dad is not here today, his love for Mom is everpresent and her love for him is unquestionable. My most favorite characteristic of their marriage is their trust of one another. Dad had a wild imagination. Always thinking of some great and unimaginable thing to do next. And Mom would always go along with it because she trusted him with all her heart. Although Mom is much more conservative, Dad loved her for all she is.

I don't know the bible real well but I have been reading different books on Heaven and how to overcome struggles since the accident in February. Recently I have been reading a book called "Facing Your Giants" by Max Lucado. It is mostly a story of David and Goliath. It tells how King Saul is envious of David and despises the peoples love for him so much that he tries to have David murdered. Jonathan is Saul's son and Jonathan loves David and helps protect him. The way the bible and the author of the book talk of Jonathan and David working together and loving one another reminds me of my mom and dad. If I replaced the names it would sound something like this: " The Master Weaver took his and her hearts and stitched a seam between them. The soul of Jay was knit to the soul of Pam, and Jay loved her as his own soul. As if the two hearts were two fabrics, God "needle and threaded" them together. So interwoven that when one moved, the other felt it. When one was stretched, the other knew it.

May their unending love for one another be an example for all to follow.

Love you, Mom and Dad. Happy Anniversary. Now apart but still forever together.

You and your sister and brothers are such a wonderful tribute to your Mom and Dads love. I know your Dad is watching over all of you beaming with pride at the loving, caring family he and your Mom brought to this world!


Happy Anniversary! I don't know maybe thats not appropriate. But I say it because everytime I see you or your family Jays love just surrounds you all like this amazing force field. It's always such a good feeling to be around you and your family. I think Jays love, protection, and dedication to you all just radiates off all of you and everyone can feel it. He's got ahold on you Pam! lol and I'm sure that especially on your Anniversary he will find some way to let you how much he loves you today and for always!

Loves, jamie

To Pam (My SuperHero)
I know you and I have had talks several times about the paralells that our marriages have. I feel priveledged to even know that someone out there such as you and Jay shared such a great love for one another and our families. When reading what Stacy wrote: "Dad had a wild imagination. Always thinking of some great and unimaginable thing to do next. And Mom would always go along with it because she trusted him with all her heart." That spoke loudly to me, the word "Trust" is so very important in a marriage and not everyone has that. But, we do.... and Jay still has a trust in you and You still trust in him, especially that he is watching over you and helping you everyday. Not only is it Trust, but Love.
You and Jay are a mentor to many and I thank you for that. Im sorry he isnt physically here to celebrate this with you, but he's with you in memories, spirit, trust and love. Your kids are loving proof that all those still exsist. He is still so proud of you. I bet God shows you some sort of sign that he is there too!
All of our love and prayers will always be with you and your family,
Love Stephanie
