My Mother-In-Law, Ruth, will turn 80 years old in July, so we are celebrating her Birthday this weekend in Chicago. She's as beautiful as the day she was married, which is almost 60 years ago. Unfortunately, my Father-In-Law has been very ill. But I know he is thrilled to have all 14 of their children "home" right now, and is looking forward to the rest of the family arriving within the next couple of days. I think the world of both of them, and have been so blessed that they're my In-Laws, and such loving Grandparents to our children--and that they raised a wonderful son- my husband!

Congrats to your mother-in-law!! She is beautiful and sounds like a wondeful lady. I've often joked with my husband that I loved him, but married him for his mother! She was a truly special person.

Nancy, when was the picture taken of Dick and Ruth that is under their wedding picture. Was it taken in June 2008? I have downloaded the picture of them and wanted to know the actual date.

Love you all,
Aunt Nancy Volmer
