70th Wedding Anniversary

Happy 70th Anniversary Poem

In 1941 they said “I Do” with a kiss
Now its been 70 years of bliss
He married the girl next door
Lillian proved she was no bore
A smile that lit up the room
A laugh that brushed off doom
She liked him too
He was a cool dude
Armond was the Italian man
Who provided for the “fam”
With his hands he worked to the top
Owning a high class hair dressing shop
Soon they had two more pearls
Cecilia and Phyllis, the Pilone girls
1 - 2 - 3 - 4
And not one more
In 1958 they moved from shore to shore
To Carmel California from Long Island New York
The Pilone girls grew up the same
It wasn’t too long when grandkids came
Cecila had three cutie pies
Phyllis did too, I’m telling no lies
3 + 3 = 6
5 girls & 1 boy in the mix
Then came the great-grandkids, so much!
And we are 4 of the whole bunch!
Grandma Pilone likes to pray
She goes to Church each Sunday
Grandpa Pilone drives here there
Without a single moment to spare
She made my blankie
It makes me happy
We love you both and the way you are (s)
Happy 70th Anniversary from 4 of your stars!
