78 Years Ago Today...


June 2, 1930

Alden G. Hopkins married Holly M. Tisdale at the United Methodist Church in Everett, Washington, where they had met almost ten years earlier. They enjoyed a long courtship as high school sweethearts and married after each had finished their college degrees and Holly had completed the requirements for attaining her lifetime teaching credential. They had a family of three girls, each six years apart and several little boys who were waiting for them in Heaven! They lived, loved, worked and served together. Unfortunately, Alden died early, in 1962. Holly lived nearly another 40 years and chose not to love another. She filled her life with her faith, serving others through teaching and enjoying her family. Though she had her faults as any of us do, she definitely was a Proverbs 31 woman!

It's good to remember where we have come from and WHO brought us to where we are today!

What a beautiful picture of your grandparents! What a tribute to your grandmother ascribing to her Proverbs 31.
