Opa and Oma on their 45th wedding anniversary
Opa and Oma met at a Missouri State Society Dance in October 1956 and married in August of the following year. We both have a very strong faith in God, and believe that faith with a lot of prayer has carried us both through out our life time.
Opa and his family were able to make it safely through WW11, and afterward. Many families died even after the war, of starvation. His story tells you just how many times they were so close to death. Each member of Opa’s family survived without injury of any kind – and we both believe that God was with them, keeping them safe.
