Now this was a lovely story to read! What a wonderful way to celebrate so many years of friendship! Intertwined lives such as these seem to be more of a rarity in this area because of Silicon Valley's migratory influence. But on the upside, this is a reminder to make sure I extend my appreciation to some of the friends I've had since kindergarten & grade school.

I hope the party is a blast - & here's to another 50 years!

Did either one of them serve in the military? The pictures look like they were more than friends.
