“Nothing great is ever achieved without much enduring.” ― St. Catherine of Siena

My parents were faithfully and, for the most part, happily married for 45 years until my dad died in 1995. My mom told me that there were some difficult times, but that her Faith helped her through the many bumps and challenges. Lots of forgiveness, lots of “letting go”, lots of love! My dad told me that he had made this commitment in the presence of Christ and he had never questioned this fact…he was going to make it work. As their son, I believe this was their greatest accomplishment and I will be eternally grateful!
