Oct131937.JPG (63771 bytes) October 13, 1937 Clifford Robert and Josephine Jarboe Gander on their wedding day, Friday, October 13, 1937.  Josephine's wedding dress was of pink cut velvet, which she made herself.  In the beginning they were as poor as the proverbial "church mouse".  Josephine, so tiny, the youngest of her doting sisters.  We wondered if she would be able to make it as a farm wife.  In the beginning it was hard for her, but her determination never wavered.  Cliff and Jo, who celebrated their 62nd wedding anniversary this year (1999) are the only couple I have known who have been on 62 honeymoons.  I salute you Jo and Cliff.
