60 Years Together

The Brannon Family About a hundred supportive family members and friends joined us in a grand celebration of Grandpa and Grandma Brannon’s 60th Wedding Anniversary! It was a fun reunion and great time to catch up with everyone, especially relatives we hadn’t seen for many years! Grandpa and Grandma’s loyalty and faithfulness to each other over all these years is a Godly example to us of God’s deign for marriage.

Grandma and Grandpa, throughout the years, your precious love for the Lord, enduring commitment to each other, and genuine compassion for others has been multiplied in the lives of your children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren and will be a shining inspiration for generations to come. Happy 60th Anniversary!

    Stories such as this one need to be told. You are tremendously blessed with God-fearing grandparents. What a treasure and testimony!

    That really was a great event! I could hardly believe every single child, grandchild, and great grandchild of Grandma and Grandpa’s was there (besides Donald of course), along with a host of familiar and unfamiliar friends and relatives. It definitely was good to meet new folks and talk with everyone. Reunions like this are not all that common – I am so glad it worked out! Thank you Mom and everyone else for all that you put into it.

    Being on the other side of the world didn’t keep me from thinking about and praying for you! (I think I might have had a small part in making the name tags too 🙂 ) I never cease to be grateful that you were there with the camera James. Thank you for sharing the truly joyous occasion with me. 60 years.
