June Miller gives us some background on and highlights of their 50 years of marriage.
To begin at the beginning - Todd and I first met as graduate students during our first week (#1) at Duke University. We married two years (#2) later, on August 1, 1970. We have been blessed with three (#3) wonderful children, and four (#4) beautiful grandchildren. Finally, this year we are celebrating our 50th (#5) wedding anniversary.
We have so many happy memories of these past 50 years. Since we worked in such different fields (Todd in tax law, and me in medical research) many of the special times include vacations and holidays. We will always remember our outstanding trip - BC (Before Children) - when the two of use spent one whole month touring England and Scotland.
All Saints Church has been a big part of our lives for the past 44 years. We have regularly attended the lovely and inspirational Episcopal services and we have treasured the fellowship of our fellow ASC members. Indeed, some of our best friends we met at church! We love and admire our always friendly, helpful, smart, and faithful clergy and staff. Todd has gotten great satisfaction serving over the years on Vestry (13 years) and as Senior Warden (5 years, including when the Great Hall addition was put on.) Now semi-retired from his law practice, Todd volunteers 3 days a week at church as Business Manager. June was on Altar Guild for years, and has spent decades working in the Thrift Shop and as an active member and officer (she is currently President) of the Women of All Saints.
What an accomplishment and inspiration! We wish June and Todd many more happy years together. We are glad they are part of All Saints!
