Fifty years. It's hard to fathom, yet not too hard to believe. Fifty years ago today, my parents were married at New Providence Presbyterian Church in New Providence, New Jersey. They had met in the church youth group a few years earlier.
My mother, the only daughter of Adolf Haberkern and Elise Gegenheimer, got ready at her parents' house in New Providence.
It was a windy March day ... just look at the bridesmaids' veils!
I LOVE this picture of my grandmother, Agnes Speck, hugging her son after the wedding. The bride is kissing her new father-in-law, Art Cubbage. Looking on is Agnes' mother, Elizabeth Linneman.
They look so young! Well they were only in their early 20's.
The newlyweds spent their honeymoon in Jamaica before returning to New Jersey.
The next fifty years brought them three children ...
... two son-in-laws, one daughter-in-law, and six grandchildren!
They have ridden the waves of life's ups and downs over fifty years. We are looking forward to celebrating this summer! Happy 50th Anniversary Dad and Mom!
