Today would have been my mom and dad's 71st wedding anniversary.
They met at a roller skating rink in Tulsa, OK back in 1938. My dad worked at the rink and my mom went there with some of her friends. They dated for three months and married on November 15, 1938. They were together for almost 45 years until my dad passed away from a heart attack at the age of 67 in 1983. My mom lived another 15 years. She passed away at the age of 77 in 1998. Today, they are celebrating together in Heaven.
