  1. Congratulations, both of you. The road is long, indeed, and parts of it weren't paved, but you've traveled it with grace and courage. You guys are amazing!

  2. Congratulations Patrick and Patty. Patrick, I did not realize that you have been doing MS homecare since 1989. You obviously took your marriage vows seriously. My hat is off to you. I know how hard it can be and yet you seem to do it with such love and grace.

  3. happy anniversary Patti and Patrick!! wow 25 years is a milestone in "normal" circumstances, 25 years in your "adventure" is absolutely amazing! I echo what Tracey's Life and zoomdoggies said in their comments. You, Patrick, define commitment and dedication with the sanctity of vows and love.

    hugs to both of you


  4. Sweet pictures and, I am sure, memories. Quite a journey you two have been on. You've earned your angel wings.

  5. Congratulations to both of you! I love the video, it's beautiful.

    We never do know, do we? My kids were grown, I had a great career, beautiful old house, I was single, an exciting new phase of my life was starting...and God laughed. MS was my 50th birthday present.

  6. Congrats and broavo! So many people forget the "in sickness and in health," vow. Many husbands split. You are an inspiration. (and a man of his word) Two lucky people.

  7. I'm impressed. My ex boomed outta here but you stuck around. =) Good for you!


  8. Sorry I'm so late with this, Patrick, but I just wanted to wish you a most Happy 25th Anniversary! Such a momentous occasion! Best wishes to both of you; you are both an inspiration to me.
