Today my parents, Melba and Ted, celebrate their 64th wedding anniversary! They've been through a lot together, including three children, all of whom are practicing Catholics, and four grandchildren. My parents have always been wonderful examples of faith for me, and I am grateful for that - eternally so, I hope!
My mom is currently in a nursing facility which is part of the senior living campus where they live in Green Valley, AZ. She had not been eating well for some weeks and had lost weight and strength. She's eating more (I'm told) and doing some physical therapy to regain some strength and balance. Please keep her and my dad in your prayers.
The picture above was taken about five years ago when I was living in a small apartment at the University of Arizona Catholic campus ministry.
