Party of the Century

Party of the Century

Party of the Century

As I gaze intently
At the many pictures
Matthew Lawrence sent me
I see gaiety, love friendship galore.

Jay and Iris 60th wedding anniversary
Truly is the Party
Of the century
One the family “LAWRENCE’S”
Will remember evermore.

I see smiling faces
As each speaker took the floor
To express they’re love and affection for
Iris and Jay
Spoken with such rapport.

Pictures of family and friends
Sons, Daughter, cousins
Smiling faces by the dozens
Beautiful table settings
Fabulous “décor”

Jay, you and Iris
Are a lucky team
This party, to you, must seem
Like a wonderful beautiful dream
Enjoy your cake and ice cream.
For many years more

(Jay and I went through El Dorado High
school together 1939-1944 my hunting, fishing, ice skating buddy)
