Fleming 50th anniversary
Francis (Dobbin) and Trula Fleming were married Aug. 22, 1964.
We asked them what they wanted for their 50th wedding anniversary and they said a camping trip, so they are on a camping trip with friends at our expense. They said they do not feel guilty either because we boys used their stuff and money all the time so they say we owe them.
Please wish them a happy 50th wedding anniversary because they have had to put up with each other for a very long time and in that time raise four boys. God help them, they are truly saints.
Love, your family and all your friends.
