Tuesday, June 29th, is not just any day for a certain pair of high school sweethearts from a small town called West Point, Mississippi. Tuesday marks the day that a then-long haired accounting student at MSU, Michael Murphy Lowther, and a green eyed baptist sorority "Lancer" girl, Donna June Maddox, were united in a service of a Christian marriage. Mike even sold his two favorite things in order to buy a ring so he could pop the question and win his bride's heart; His beloved cow, "EMMA" and even his motorcycle in exchange for a diamond ring for miss Donna. When he proposed over a romantic dinner at "Shoney's," she said YES and the rest is history!
The small town love birds left their roots when Mike graduated from MSU and built a life together traveling all over, experiencing life as newlyweds in Memphis, Chicago and Houston where they settled down to have three perfect children, (wink!) and live happily ever after.
Mom and Dad, you have shown unconditional love, support, and the precious gift of serving as role models, leading by example through your dedication, value, character and commitment towards one another through your marriage. Your family and friends love you more than you know!
Congratulations for 36 Wonderful Years of Marriage Donna June and Michael Murphy Lowther!
As the French say, Salud! "Bon Anniversaire De Mariage!"
Happy 36th Anniversary Mom and Dad!
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.And now these three remain. Faith, Hope and Love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13.
