friends and family," Mel said.
"To get something out of life you
have to give something. We are
thankful that we lived this long,
have our health and see our chil-
dren and grandchildren grow, and
to be healthy enough to enjoy
them."
And having them all together at
the anniversary party was para-
mount for them although Marilyn
admits it was a little strange.
"We were surprised when we
realized what was going on," she
said. "It was very weird to be
there in that situation, thinking,
'Where has the time gone?' It was
also strange signing the ketubah
again and being the ones under
the chuppah."
It was "strange" for their grand-

son Ben, also. "Not many people
get to hold up the chuppah for
their grandparents," he said.
Very close with both of them,
Ben often visits in Florida. "I love
spending time with them, at the
pool, out to dinner, no matter
what we all do."
Mel said, "Sometimes, after so
many years, you take things for
granted. Sixty years is a lifetime.
First you get married, and your
life changes from one person to
two; then you have children and
grandchildren, and the years fly by
so quickly.
"The ceremony was very touch-
ing. Having all the generations
of the family there to share our
anniversary with us made it per-
fect."
