March 29, 2019, marked a very happy occasion for Leonard and Ingrid Perry.
The couple celebrated 60 wonderful years of marriage at Life Care Center of Crossville, Tennessee, where Leonard is a resident.
Family came from far and near to join the facility’s residents and associates in sharing this special day with the Perrys. Ingrid even brought her wedding dress to display, and Miranda Hajny, activity director, put up additional wedding decorations. Guests also partook of a buffet and refreshments.
Leonard, who has always been deeply tied to the church, sang “Amazing Grace” to his beautiful bride. As he delivered an emotional prayer for their marriage, not a dry eye was in the house.
“My favorite thing was seeing everyone,” said Leonard.
When asked what he loves about his wife, he shared, “Ingrid is a good woman. She fixes things that I like. She is interested in what I do.”
