This week my grandmother is celebrating an astonishing double Pearl anniversary. That’s 30 years of marriage, twice!
Once upon a time
…there was a beautiful young Italian girl named Liliana, who came to England, met a handsome young man called Jack, whom she married and spent the next 30 blissful years with.
What’s better than one pearl? Two pearls!
For most people, that would be enough. Every girl’s dream of marrying the perfect man, living in a nice house and raising an adorable family came true for my grandmother. However, a couple of years after granddad Jack passed away, in swooped another Englishman, ready to win over Liliana’s love, and take his new grandchildren to watch the footy. For that young girl from Senigallia, she got to live life all over again!
Best wishes from Japan
Mami, myself, and great-grandson, Rikuto, send our best wishes to Liliana and Brian. Congratulations on 30 years together. You’re an inspiration to our generation!If you have a comment, find me on Twitter at @longcountdown. I'd love to hear from you!
