Wendy and Frank Blevins will celebrate 50 years of marriage Sunday, Oct. 18.

Galt residents Frank and Wendy (Porter) Blevins will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary Sunday, Oct. 18. The happy couple started their journey way back when a young Wendy and Frank said “I do” on Oct. 18, 1970 in Carson City, Nevada.

Family and friends will be celebrating Frank and Wendy’s 50th anniversary COVID-19 style – from a distance.

Family members impart their secret to wedded bliss and loving congratulations from afar:

• Marriage is a partnership based on love, trust, tolerance and tenacity; the order varies for any given year. Congratulations to my parents, who are in it for the long haul. Love, Angela (daughter) and Steve Kehlet.

• The best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Happy Anniversary, Grandma and Papa! Love, Brynna Kehlet (granddaughter)

• The love, patience, caring for each other, hard work, shared values and goals made your marriage an example for all. Best wishes! Linda (sister) and Mike Haze

• Congratulations! The 50 wonderful years shared together confirm you married the person you love and your best friend. Dennis (brother) and Diane Blevins

• Your anniversary is a day to celebrate, a day to remember the love that brought you together and how much it has grown, and a day for those who care about you to wish you all the good things you deserve. Leslie (sister) and Carl Boyd

Congratulations on 50 years of love and memories.
