This was an unstaged moment between my parents on Grayton Beach, FLA 2008.

In 1969 - When my parents had only been married two years (aged 24 and 29), they took in four small kids and gave them a home. Forty years, four additional kids, twenty two grandchildren, and four great grandchildren later they are still very much in love!
