Fifty years ago today when Howard and I stepped out of this church–we had no idea what was in store for us. We were married in the old Sinclair Memorial Presbyterian Church in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I remember it was a cool late April day and slightly windy. Shortly after this photo was taken, my veil flew straight up in the hair. Fortunately, it did not fly off my head!
We would have two wonderful children. Brian Scott Beall was born August 6, 1968 in Louisville, Kentucky.
Deborah Lee Beall was born January 12, 1971 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Our lives were filled with school–
and finally–more school!
And just think–we did all of that schooling together and were able to pay for it ourselves with no bailout from our parents! The secret here is that we worked together using our own resources. And we paid it all off as we progressed through the levels.
Our children grew up and married. Brian and LuAn were married in their front yard March 9, 1991 in Broomfield, Colorado.
Debbie and Dee were married in our back yard August 22, 1992 in Broomfield, Colorado.
Today, we have a large group.
This photo was taken in 2005. Since then, we have more people who are not pictured here. Briefly–this is our family:
Brian, LuAn and Brandon. Brandon is all grown up now with three daughters of his own.
Dee took this photo of Debbie, their children, Josh’s girlfriend, and a younger cousin.
All in all, I would say these fifty years have been wonderful!
