Title 50th

 

In November, 2016, family and friends gathered at Battleground Baptist Church, in Battleground, Washington, to celebrate the fifty years of marriage of Glenn and Delcine. When they met in the mid 1960's, Delcine was a recent implant to the state of Washington, while Glenn was a lifetime resident of Battleground. They met through church, and over time came to realize that they had a complementary faith and world view and over time a romance evolved. They were married in the ? Church, and settled down in Vancouver, Washington.

Three children, five grandchildren and fifty years later, we come to this celebration of a wonderful and committed life, focused and guided by their abiding faith in Jesus Christ. Here are some photos to help preserve the moment.
