|Planning began nearly a year ahead, Jane Soltys and
JoAnn Huys took on the lion's share of the work.
The day began with family and friends gathered at Queen of Peace for a
special mass celebrating 50 years of marriage and reaffirming their vows.
Next, pictures were taken at Oliver Gardens in South Bend, IN. Even
though the calendar said June 1, it was quite chilly as many of the pictures
The evening was a night of dinner, dancing and special remembrances.
It was a very special time for all.
The picture to the right shows a number of the family members in Oliver
gardens waiting for pictures to be taken.
