************* “The First Ten Years”
to Laurie for their 10th anniversary, July 16, 2010 Let me tell you about our first ten years.
They were not without their share of tears
But they had many joys too
Because God has always let us through
Our struggles and trials
Down life’s many aisles. She has been all that I need and much more
Her love has always been great
She always seems to have energy for
Her service is rarely late
She has amazing love in store
Her love makes me glad she’s my mate. Happy Ten Anniversary! Love, Gerry
