They’ve had quite an adventurous life together, traveling for 10 years after retirement and volunteering for groups like Mobile Missionary Assitance Program and Rio Grande Bible Institute.

Now with Diane on hospice during the COVID-19 pandemic, the two had to commemorate this year’s milestone a little different, but it didn’t make the day any less special.
