“P” is for Parents

59 years ago today my parents were married. Don’t they make a lovely couple? With mutual love shining out from their faces they had their whole lives ahead of them.

The following two photos were taken on their honeymoon in the Adirondacks.

I think my Dad looks like he could have been a movie star, but then again I might just be a wee bit prejudiced.

They were the best parents a child could ever hope for. Loving. Caring. Supportive. Always there to lend an ear or moral support. I miss them so. My Dad passed away almost ten years ago; my Mom I lost a year ago August. Oddly enough, they both died about a week and a half before their respective birthdays.

I’ve had dreams about them lately (as I wrote a few weeks back). In those dreams they were together. Again. Normally when I dream about them one or the other is in my dream but not both. I’d like to think that the meaning behind those dreams is that they found each other through the great expanse of the Hereafter.

Mom, Dad, wherever you are today, Happy Anniversary. I love and miss you both more than you’ll ever know.

They are beautiful!!

I definitely see you in your mother. Love the pic of her in those groovy trousers sitting by the river. Wow!!

I believe in my heart of hearts that they still feel the love, no matter what realm they now inhabit.

What is remembered, lives.

xx to you dear, for being so loving.

A great post, and wonderful tribute, Lynne.  I have a copy of my parents wedding photo framed. It’s a very good thing to look at it and see them young, full of dreams, with life ahead.  I gain perspective from that.

ah lynne

thinking of you

they are lovely pics - both gorgeous, and yes, your dad definately has a movie-star vibe going on

Lovely post, lovely pictures.
Do you know where in the Adirondacks the photos were taken?

Reya, yeah for groovy trousers! I know, they are great, aren’t they? I know that wherever they are they are there for me.

Becky, yes to see them young and full of what lies ahead is wonderful.

Letty, yes, I know you feel it too. My dad could have been a young Marlon Brando in these pics.

Mary, thanks. My mom always referred to this area as “the glen” and I believe it is the Hudson River. They honeymooned in Indian Lake.

Funny…I’ve always thought my dad was movie star handsome too.  I think there is something romantic about that era. (Yes, your dad was quite handsome, it’s not just you)

I can’t help but think what a bittersweet day you must’ve had.  Good memories mixed with the sadness of your loss…


perfect timing for a visit to the lovely lynne. didn’t they know how to pose back then. priceless photos. they both look wonderful, and they know that you love them, even more than you think they do. and they are there together, and they are with you. in the woods. at night when you wake. when you think you’re all alone. they silently smile and hold you
lots of love
