50 Golden Years – Sheila & Charles
Sheila and Charles are in their early seventies and they have been together for over fifty years since meeting through a mutual friend while they were students at City College of San Francisco.
They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on the grounds of Hiddenbrooke Golf Resort in Vallejo, Calif which is where they were married all those years before. Guests included their extended family, friends old and new, church mates, as well as their original bridesmaids and groomsmen. The evening consisted of toasts, dancing and storytelling, in this walk down memory lane.
Sheila says she knew that Charles was the one because "he was always protective, he made me feel safe, and he was very funny. We were always together, and we had the same interests."
"Our love is special because we have weathered many storms together, but they have made us stronger, by God’s grace!"
"He is kind, loving and funny. After over 50 years, he still makes me smile with his sense of humor, and we can now finish each other’s sentences. He’s a great husband, father and friend, and the love of my life."
During their happy 50 years together they have gained four amazing children and six grandchildren, and they enjoy travelling. "We have been so blessed to have been surrounded by a wonderful family and friends who have always supported us though so many years and helped make our 50th Anniversary the “Best” We thank God for allowing us to continue to be together."
