Diamond Wedding Anniversary

Family post now. I wanted to wish my Uncle Ronnie and Aunt Nancy a happy DIAMOND Wedding Anniversary today.

60 years ago, Nancy Duncan, still a wee Blantyre lass (and sister of my mother) married Ronnie MacFarlane.

Amazing! To be married for 60 happy years is just simply an incredible milestone.

Jane Davies Congratulations Nancy & Ronnie on your Diamond Wedding Anniversary! from an old friend, Janie Davies ( Janie Crighton) xx

The Blantyre Project our family have several photos of that happy day 60 years ago. I like this one with Nancy beside her 2 brothers (John and Archie) and 2 sisters (Margaret and little Janet, my mum on the far right). 31st August 1957, Anderson Church, Stonefield Road.

The Blantyre Project love it. I see my daughter a little like my mother in this one. Always strange to see photos of parents when they were children. For me certainly, its always a wake up call about how fragile life is and making the most of it. I live each and every day to the fullest. Something i’ve done since the death of my parents.
