It's About Time!
Fred said it very eloquently yesterday. In the length of their relationship, until recently, marriage was not a word they used as it was not possible. But in the last few years, things have changed radically. When our friends Al and Stew married in Massachusetts last year, the ball began to roll.
I had mentioned to them that they might do the same thing. They looked at me with surprise. But, the ball kept rolling. This summer on a long road trip, journey would be a better word, they married in Massachusetts as well, in a wonderful little church with about fifteen friends in attendance. People who traveled that distance to be with them. Unfortunately I wasn't one of them, not because I didn't want to be, but other things were going on in my life at the time.
Therefore, yesterday was very meaningful. To see them surrounded by their church community and many other friends was significant. They are much admired and loved.
It's a testament to deep friendship, and sometimes silliness, that we have endured as friends. It was great to see the end result with their marriage as they begin a new season of their lives.
Blessings, Ron and Fred! You are good men who deserve all the happiness and love that you are receiving and will receive in the future.
