Lt. & Mrs. David R. Peterson
June 6, 1970

It will be forty years of marriage this Sunday.
It is hard to imagine.. as I am sure everyone says.

We were married the week my husband graduated from Texas A&M University and was commissioned in the United States Air Force.

Looking back he had more adjustments to make than I did.
He certainly managed them well.

We spent four years in the Air Force - lived in Texas, Colorado, Maine, he went to Korea and I moved back to Texas with our first born son, and then when he came
home we were sent to Arkansas.

We moved back to Texas when my husband's four year committment was up
and he joined the family farming operation.

We had two more sons and after sending them all off to college,
started our own family farming operation in Mexico.

All of our sons have brought us so much joy:

1st born is our business partner in Mexico
His wife is a successful businesswoman.
Two children

2nd born son is assistant national sales administrator for a company
His wife is a doctor
Two "grand dogs"
(Great Danes to be exact!)

3rd son is a very successful realtor for a national company
He lives close by and we enjoy seeing him so much!
He is enjoying the single life.

We've been blessed. It's been a marriage of adventure with the usual
trials and tribulations that have made for an even stronger union.

Life is good!

Here we are today... a few more inches, a little less hair...
but, oh so happy to have each other!
