Laura and I attended Bill & Paula Edwards 60^th wedding anniversary celebration in Tyler on the 16^th and 17^th . The evening of the 16^th Bill & Paula’s 4 children, the several grandchildren and great grandchildren, other relatives, and close friends assembled at Bill and Paula’s home for a Mexican dinner. After dinner, the 4 children (principally daughter Barbara) surprised their parents with a verbal and pictorial history of their ancestors dating back to the Revolutionary War. The following morning there was a high nuptial mass at Bill & Paula’s church, presided over by the Bishop, where Bill and Paula renewed their vows of 60 years ago. Following the church service there was a reception at a local hotel. The two-day event was a fitting celebration for a caring couple.
