This is a photo of my parents, Jerry and Irene Meylor, on their wedding day on June 29, 1949. They are beautiful and young and will someday be the parents of four daughters and four sons. They will experience grief and joy. And they will work hard and lose a farm anyway. They will live by the seasons and fight for everything they have. They will never give up. They will lose each other in the end. They will lose everything except their faith. They will never know how amazing they are.
