Catlin, Mr./Mrs. William (40th - 19 JUL 1930)
As the noon hour of Saturday, July 19th, approached and guests began to gather at the Wm. Catlin realized that the others had remembered that the day had a very special meaning for them.
As Mr. Catlin came from his work his surprise was as great as his wife’s had been.
On another Saturday just forty years before Rev. Richardson had pronounced the words that started Mattie Welsh, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Welsh, and Wm. Catlin, son of Mr. and Mrs. Aaron Catlin down the path of life together as man and wife.
Friends can scarcely realize that this youthful looking couple have only ten years more travel down this path before reaching their golden wedding anniversary.
Like the paths we all travel theirs has had its sunshine and its shadow.
They have faced losses, hard work, and disappointments together. Through it all they have kept a sympathetic generous spirit, always ready and anxious to help others. They have not let their troubles harm them but instead they have been developed and broadened and led to put their faith in a Higher Power.
All of their friends feel that the best wish they can offer Mr. and Mrs. Catlin at this time is that their hearts may continue to be full of the sunshine that has brightened their path down to the present. May it stay with them until they reach their "Golden Wedding Day" and then go with them down to life’s journey’s end.
