Morris 70th Anniversary -
It was at a summer fair in July 1941 that Tom Morris first met Helen. After a long distance courtship due to Tom working in Newport News, VA, Tom proposed in December 1942 and they were married on August 28, 1943. Seventy years later, Tom and Helen have watched three sons grow up, marry and give them six grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren (with another due in October). If you ask them the secret to their marriage's success, they will both tell you that their relationship with Jesus Christ has, is and always will be the most important part of their marriage. A family celebration was held on August 10, 2013 to honor this milestone. Thank you Mom and Dad for your leadership and examples. We love you and thank God for your love for each other and your family.
