Today's photos were taken on January 15th, the day that my brother Daniel Riley married Justice Hart.
This past weekend Ted's parents came to dinner and I was struck by how much they reminded me of my dad's parents. There's a very distinct quality, I think, that two people have when they've been married for over 60 years. Though I have no idea what it's like to be in that kind of marriage, I know a lot about what it's like to be around that kind of marriage. I've had the privilege of spending a lot of time with my grandparents over the past 20 years, and it's been one of the great blessings of my life.
This is my hope for you, Daniel and Justice. I wish for you to be 85 and 80 years old, celebrating 60 years of marriage. I wish you love and resilience and humor along the way. And I hope to be there with you, toasting your family and celebrating your long life together.
