Most of the anniversaries I write about are not really anniversaries at all.  They are really Deathiversaries.

This past week Evan and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary.


In 10 years we have had 4 miraculous children.  We have buried our oldest and our youngest sons.  I am afraid to count how many other funerals we have attended.

The divorce statistics after the death of a child are debatable.  Some say it is a very high number, others disagree.   I am not sure which to believe and I do not think it matters.   It is bittersweet.  All marriages have difficult and stressful times (I think).

Our lives are not the “happily ever after” that I had imagined but

  1. You are beautiful! When I met Evan, I remember thinking I was so grateful you found each other. He was kind, thoughtful and wonderful …. just like you. Happy Anniversary!

  2. Happy Anniversary Lanie and Evan! So glad to say that I was there 10 years ago. You all have been through so much together. I have so much love and respect for you. All my best. – Amy

  3. What a great saying, and a beautiful picture. Happy Anniversary!

  4. Belated Happy Anniversary! You look so beautiful in the picture. I’m sorry that you have gone through so much heartache since that day.

  5. Happy Anniversary to you my love! Yes, not all of our 10 years together has been happy — some events have been heartbreaking, of course. But not a day goes by that I am not HAPPY that I met you, that you love me, that you stay with me. Each day with you presents a new opportunity for happiness — and another page in the story. I loved you then, I love you now, and I will love you forever. Love, Evan

  6. We’re glad that you both found each other! And can’t believe it’s been 10 years! Congrats to you both, and may you have many more together!

  7. Congratulations, Lanie and Evan! May you have more decades together to celebrate. The happy ending counts only at the end and until you get there, it is surely the story, as you right. May your shared story be rich in joys and rewards; you’ve already had enough heartbreak.
    Much love, Cornelia

  8. Your post brings to mind the movie When Harry Met Sally and they have those people telling their stories woven throughout. Glad you stayed together and very happy you found each other. Happy Anniversary!

  9. […] And, a very happy anniversary to Evan! […]
