Gloria and Chuck in 2008
In the golden years of our lives
we have at last decided to get married, so on May 1st 2010,
in Pipestone, Minnesota, we will have our special ceremony.
Now you will feel no rain,
For each of you will be shelter to the other.
Now you will feel no cold,
For each of you will be warmth to the other.
Now there is no more loneliness,
For each of you will be companion to the other.
Now you are two bodies,
But there is only one life before you.
Go now to your dwelling place
To enter into the days of your togetherness
And may your days be good and long upon the earth.
The ceremony will be performed by the
Reverend Elizabeth McCabe of Pipestone, who is a long time friend
of the couple.
Sometimes in the winds of change we find our direction.
