My brother Larry and his bride of nearly 55 years, the beautiful-in-all-ways Beverly.
Karen and I picked up my sister Trish and toddled over to Decatur, Illinois to share lunch and stories together with these two lovebirds. Laughter, tears, family stories and hugs followed, not necessarily in that order.
I asked to take their portrait, and they both graciously posed with patience and smiles.
The perfectionist in me sees how I could have been better prepared and gotten a more perfect image, but the smiles and love shine through.
Their love for each other is a shining example for an ever-expanding family of children, grand-children and the rest of our far-flung clan.
