Gordon and Rosalynd,
Name: Pete Balding
It's hard to imagine my childhood without the Greens. An ultimate Sunday in
the 60s was when the Greens came to Sacramento after church or we Baldings went
to Davis to spend the day with Uncle Gordon, Aunt Rosalynd and cousins Bob, Gary
and Steve. I remember waiting with my brother John and sisters Carol and Nancy
in the front yard (or by the front windows on cold winter days) in a heightened
state of anticipation for a view of the Greens' car turning our corner. What
would follow was a seeming eternity of childhood joy playing board games like
Monopoly or perhaps a game of touch football, riding bikes around the
neighborhood or just getting up to some sort of high jinks that only children
can understand the pleasure of. Unfortunately the fun had to come to an end, and
when the Greens would get in the car to head home or we Baldings did the same,
the departing car would be chased for blocks by a small group of cheering
children hoping to extend the fun as long as possible. I remember one such chase
with Gary on his bike He was able to follow the Baldings' Travelall all the way
to the onramp of I80 nearly a mile away. Of course he used shortcuts and my Dad,
Bill, drove intentionally slow. But then during the half-hour trip home, we had
to console ourselves with thoughts of the next time.

Name: Connie and Dean Thompson Ankeny, Iowa
I have wonderful memories of Rosalynd and Gordon. I am a cousin on her fathers side (she can tell you exactly how far down the line). My family moved to Iowa in 1939, since they were the only relatives we had in the state, we became really close and have kept in touch all these many years. Always look forward to their visits - now we keep in touch by e-mail. Congratulations on this wonderful occasion. Would love to celebrate with you - eat an extra piece of cake for Dean and I. Our love Dean and Connie
Name: Phyllis and Bernie Johnson
Dear Rosalind and Gordon: We've sent another greeting via internet - check it. Having crossed that golden marker ourselves a few months ago, we know how significant it is. Too many of the events in the past 50 years are but a blur, but the really important ones remain. Enjoy such memories. There are the words of a hymn that keep coming to mind when the subject of anniversaries appears: "O God our Help in ages past, our Hope for years to come!" May He continue to supply you with everything good. Sincerely in Him: Phyllis and Bernie
Name: Harry Maybin

Name: Bill Winey
Congratulations! Fifty years is a short long time. Amazing, you were married in Minneapolis on Feb. 18, 1950. I was in St. Peter, Minn, at that time and met Shirley there. We were married in Marinette, Wis on 30 Dec. 1950. I remember Roselyn and her sister Marie very well as we all grew up together in Jefferson, Iowa. They lived in the first house south of Clara Beth Smith who graduated with us. In fact Alberta Thrope lived across the street from the Capps. She didn't graduate with us, but I don't know why, she moved or something. Any, congratulations and a healthy many more years together.
God Bless you,
Bill & Shirley Winey

What a great site you have and congratulations to both of you on 50 years. I retired last year and now spend more time with genealogy. We visited our Matter family homeland last summer in France. We toured Alteckendorf which is where our Matter family lived before leaving for America in 1751. It was very interesting. That area was formerly part of Germany. I keep working away and now have nearly 38,000 names in my database.

It is indeed a blessing for your family to have the opportunity to celebrate the 50th Wedding Anniversary of your parents.
My parents will be celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary on 31Aug 2000. I was browsing the net when I came across the yr parents big day. I will certainly be borrowing some ideas from yr home page_ a guest book at the reception hall being one of them.
If you have any suggestions, it will be most welcome. We will be having a church service and dinner among immediate family and friends. My parents wedding day coincides with Malaysian Independence day but my parents were married a good few years before Independence!
All the best to you n your family.
