The cou­ple cel­e­brated their an­niver­sary with many fam­ily mem­bers, in­clud­ing Carolyn’s 92-year-old mother, who came from Lansdale, Pa. They spent their an­niver­sary day in Vir­ginia Beach at the home of their son, Ben; daugh­ter-in-law, Su­san; grand­sons, Jared and Ian; and Su­san’s par­ents, Chuck and Bar­bara Run­ner.
