In the eighth grade is where we first came face to face;
Twin Falls High School in Idaho is where it took place.
This girl had the prettiest red hair I had ever seen;
she stood out like a rose, had an unusual name, Aileen.
With a full-time job as a Bellhop, had no time to play;
We remained friends that just went our separate way.
I came home after spending two-years in the Marines;
Then I called and dated the red head named Aileen.
Were together from April to June and got engaged;
She was 19 & I was 20, my Mother signed, I was under age.
We got married in L.A. on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 25, 1948;
It may be hard for you to believe, but Aileen was late.
Sixty-five Years doesn’t sound long when you say it fast;
We’re so grateful that we’ve been able to make it last.
Lots of patience, love and help from the man up above;
We made it through as it’s each other that we think of.
We’ve been blest to have such a great family tree;
Each one of them means the world to Aileen and me.
Three children, Gail, Kirk, and Jill that makes us happy;
Five grandchildren, April, Wendi, Jared, Noelle & Ashley.
Eight great grandchildren are loveable at any age;
Jordan, Cole, Chase, Alyssa, Owen, Ethan, Lucy & Paige.
It’s real easy to see that we have a lot to treasure;
Loving life and our family gives us a lot of pleasure.
