61st WEDDING ANNIVERSARY

HATCHER
Congratulations to Samuel and Sarah Hatcher of Winterhouse Brook, Bonne Bay, who are celebrating their 61st wedding anniversary today. Sam and Sarah's journey started when they were both walking along LeMarchant Road in St. John's over 61 years ago. Sam, after returning from overseas, was lost and asked Sarah, who was a total stranger, for directions. It was love at first sight and their love for one another is so very much alive and continues to blossom after all these years. They exchanged their vows in Woody Point on Sept. 23, 1943, and we are so proud to say, they still live in the same family dwelling as they did 61 years ago. On behalf of your daughter May (Pat), sons Clifton (Georgia), David (Anita), Bob (Suzanna), Wayne (Juanita) and Owen along with your 10 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren we wish you a wonderful 61st anniversary filled with lots of love, respect and admiration.
"May your day be as special as you both are. We love you both and may your journey together continue for many years to come."
