An Anniversary

Gentle Friends, today would have been my parents 63rd Wedding Anniversary.  I flipped through their Wedding album and here's a couple of pictures I don't think I've shared before...



_________________

This past Sunday I again placed flowers on the altar of Most Holy Redeemer for them and Rico had the Mass Intentions said in their honor... 
It was Pentecost Sunday and the color choices were sort of preset... 

... but without my knowledge, they used Birds of Paradise, a flower my mom really liked and even grew... the arrangements also used other tropical flowers she really would have enjoyed...

The Birds of Paradise are the perfect floral arrangement. They compliment the "flames" hanging, even evoking flames themselves. Thank you for sharing such sweet pictures with us.

The flowers are always spot on...especially for
Pentecost Sunday.

Thanks for sharing your parents with us. They looked so happy and beautiful and handsome, respectfully. The flowers were great. And the mass intentions were a thoughtful gift to their memory. Again, thank you for sharing.

They were such a lovely couple! The Church looked beautiful. It is special that flowers were chosen that your mom would have liked.
