Dear Tom and Sue Baker -
It calls for a celebration when a couple has been together for a quarter of a century and their relationship has survived the battles of this disparaging world. This celebration would be incomplete without a 25th wedding anniversary toast or two or three or four being raised to the eternal couple. So without any further ado ...
Spouse: someone who'll stand by you through all the trouble you wouldn't have had if you'd stayed single.
Coming together is the beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.
The development of a really good marriage is not a natural process. It is an achievement.
David and Vera Mace
One man by himself is nothing. Two people who belong together make a world.
And to the two we celebrate today, may it only get better and better with time, like fine wine and perfectly aged cheese. I will let the two of you decide, on this your special day, known also for merriment and practical jokes, who is the wine and who is the cheese.
