Yes, we did have a wonderful barbecue dinner after morning services on May  28th… but it wasn’t really a Memorial Day celebration.  It was a SURPRISE PARTY to celebrate Gail and Leon Wilson’s 56th wedding anniversary!

Along with all the church members, the guests included the Wilson’s children (Bro. Michael and his sister Denine), their grandchildren (Galen and Caprice), their great-grandson Bentley, Gail’s sisters (Inez Conley, Doris Rogers, and Reba York), and Jack York, Reba’s husband.  Many friends and relatives who couldn’t be present sent their love, prayers, and good wishes.

There was a wonderful cake, beautiful photos from Gail and Leon’s wedding, and a presentation of a newspaper that was published on the day of their wedding.  Bro. Michael sang “The Moon is Still Over Her Shoulder” in honor of his parents’ long and loving marriage.  (Bentley covered his ears while Bro. Michael sang!)

Gail and Leon were surprised and thankful for the love shown by their family, friends, and church family.

Happy Anniversary, Gail and Leon!  And many, many happy returns!
