This is a photograph of my maternal grandparents, Leland and Gladys Marling Norris at their 50th wedding anniversary celebration on April 30, 1970. They were married in Elkhart, Indiana in a small family ceremony and they raised 6 children in Dayton, Ohio. My grandfather passed away in March, 1978 and my grandmother followed him in August, 1984. After her death, my mother presented me with a small box that contained the top of their anniversary cake. It has it's own special place in my curio cabinet and it will always be one of my treasures.
