As a family, we recently had the joy of celebrating my parents’ Diamond Wedding anniversary. With their children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, other family and friends, my parents enjoyed afternoon tea and sharing memories and stories from the past 60 years. As with all these events, a few words needed to be said and our elder sister rose magnificently to the occasion, honouring our parents and the legacy they had created in the lives of us all. Words are very important in my family. We talk.
