Glenn and Gwendolyn Brown
January 13, 1940 - January 13, 2010
This handsome couple are my husband's grandparents, and today is their 70th Wedding Anniversary!
I've always loved going to visit Wesley's grandparents. They live on the family farm in North Carolina, in the house Granddaddy was born in. He has never lived in any other house! Over the years they've made improvements, such as turning the back porch into a bathroom and putting a bathroom in their bedroom. I feel like I'm stepping into a more relaxed time when we go to their house, and it's easy to sit in rocking chairs and just relax.
The family home, where Granddaddy was born and has lived his entire life!
Grandmother and Granddaddy raised three daughters in this house, one of whom is now my mother-in-law. They have nine grandchildren and about ten great-grandchildren (not sure on that count!). Wes is a lot like his granddaddy, calm and quiet, just watching everyone else. He is the grandfather I never had, as both of my grandfathers died before I could remember them. Grandmother always has some cookies made, and Wes tells me it's always been that way. She had a drawer in the kitchen that always had cookies for the grandkids. I've seen those grown-up grandkids raiding that cookie drawer myself! ;)

Join our family today in praising God for this living example of lasting marriage right before our eyes!
