5-20-18  Mel and Pat Oakes with Liz and Reuel Nash cutting a wedding anniversary cake--55 years on the 18th for the Oakeses and  39 for the Nashes on the 19th. Congregational Church of Austin

Celebrating the Oakes 55th Wedding Anniversary with song
written by dear friend, Nodie Murphy
(sung to the tune of "immoretal, Invisble")

In health and in sickness to have and to hold,
For richer, for poorer—no promise of gold,
Two souls independen, yet long joined as one,
Uplifting the other as life's work is don.

"To love and to cherish til death us do par"—
A well-honored oath you have taken to heart.
Your faithful devotion has shown us the way.
May God's love surround you and bless you each day.

Joe Pierce, outdoor rock climbing.
