Ron and Karen Brantley
Ron and Karen Brantley celebrate 50 years of marriage on July 31, 2018. Their relationship is testimony to the bond of marriage.
Ron, a business owner, finally retired this year, is respected by all who know him. Karen an excellent homemaker, has a passion for horses and spent her time training and showing them, with many awards to show for it.
They both are strong-willed and driven, but agree respect, kindness and selflessness have been key in their marriage. He calls her sweetheart, she lovingly calls him daddy and you’d better not have much to say about it. Though many challenges through the years, they have not known an adversary they didn’t face together, medical issues such as M.S. and cancer have changed how they live. For most people, this would be tiresome. Amazingly, their commitment grows stronger, their relationship closer, their bond tighter and their love deeper year after year.
Their marriage is a symbol of what love can endure and the priceless rewards achieved with working through the hard times.
Theirs is a real love story.
Happy anniversary Mom and Dad. We all love you.
