40th Wedding Anniversary

I cannot believe 40 years have passed since Tony and I were married. We were married at the home of my bishop, Marvin Nelson, in his living room on September 19, 1970. The Nelson's are now temple workers at the Los Angeles Temple, and we see them occasionally when we attend. The night we married Bishop Nelson told me Tony would join the church. I believed him, and a year after we were married he was baptized. A year later we were sealed in the Los Angeles Temple for time and all eternity, along with our son Miguel. At the time we were sealed I was seven months pregnant with Ramona, our youngest child, so when she was born she was born in the covenant. Our witnesses to our marriage in 1970 were Tony's sister, Margaret and her husband, Gene. After our wedding we went out for awhile, but had to go home because I had to go to work the next morning. Tony was in college and I was working to support us. We were living at Tony's parent's home at that time. In fact, Tony proposed marriage to me at dinner one night with his mother present. Since she was working at the LA County Fair she could not attend our wedding, we went ahead with our plans instead of waiting.

Many years later Tony told me he was sorry we had not had a nice church wedding, one his family could have attended.

We are having an Open House at our home on September 18, 2010 to celebrate with our friends and family.
