It was 63 years ago tomorrow, my parents were married.

Sadly, we lost our father in 2002. They raised 9 children. Dad drove a truck for a living and mom did several job through the years. They worked hard to piece things together so we could have a decent childhood. It wasn’t easy for them, but they never complained. We had roof over our heads and food on the table. We were taught the meaning of respect, the values of life and never take more from those who had less. We were taught to help others if we could? We all turned out ok, but there was glitch along the way. Most of the others turned out to be GOPers and Yes, they Trumpers too!

But happy anniversary to the best parents anyone could ever have! I miss you dad, everyday!

3. Happy anniversary to your parents

My parents made it to 53. We lost mom on January 20 2005. Such a sad day. Losing mom and getting W! Dad will be 93 this year. They both came from a small town in Texas about 20 miles from El Paso. Dad enlisted in the Army and became an officer. We traveled the world. My brother and I were born in Munich. It was a good life. We kids, 5 of us, never wanted for anything....Damn I miss Mom!
