O’Keefe’s Fiftieth Part II

as I said, fishes swam in some of the centerpieces; all the decorations were striking. The food was delicious, the company was capital, the weather was balmy…and the honored couple were handsome, beautiful, witty, and certainly worthy.

We indulged in tasty appetizers beautifully presented on the front lawn; we ate beef and chicken and drank sparkling cider, and proposed toasts. We laughed at the entertainment, and watched with fascination, as by video, each family in the church lifted a congratulatory glass and spoke words of love and endearment to the O’Keefes. We heard accolades from their sons and from their friends.

We ate cake, and Abby teased.

It was a spectacular event; I cannot recall a more beautiful, handsomely done celebration.

In response to Abby’s long-standing mantra, Don lifted a singular toast. Her mantra? “Drink your milk, Don. Milk drinkers make better lovers.”

They are quite a couple, Don and Abby O’Keefe, married now 50 years; fun-loving, godly, accomplished, successful, and having accumulated a wide circle of adoring friends.

Congratulations once again to a very dear couple.
