3 Mimi and Papa Bear, Congratulations on reaching such a tremendous milestone in your life. The love between you both is so great; fifty years together is just another way of showing your love. Thank you so much for everything you have done for me and my family. I love you both and wish you the best of luck in years to come. Your granddaughter, Blair

4 June 27, 2009 Dear Mom and Dad- Happy 50th Anniversary! It seems like only yesterday (24 years ago) that we were celebrating your 26th Anniversary; days before our wedding. In our pre-marital counseling, we were told that marriage would make our individual triumph’s in life twice as fun and our individual problems and consolations in life half the burden of going through them alone. While love doubles the successes in marriage, it also cuts in ½ the pain that occurs in life. Though the phrases used in marriage vows about ‘sickness and health’ or ‘for richer or poorer’ are thrown around; their meaning becomes clearer the longer a marriage lasts. As all of us reflect on your shared lives together; we often think back to what makes a good marriage and the evidence of your lifelong commitment is apparent. From our perspective, we have tried to pass on to our children that the only real measure of ‘success’ is commitment to God and to each other. The results of your love are found in the successes of the children you have raised. We have attempted to follow your example – the result- three loving couples and nine grandchildren to carry on the legacy you have shown to each other. None of this would have been possible without your commitment, grit and determination over 50 years to invest your time and energies into your family, putting them first. Thank you for your unfailing love and commitment to one another and to us. Both of you together created a home that provided us with the chance to continue that circle of commitment into the next generation. We always knew that you loved us and would support us in whatever we would do but the most important value you passed on to us is to value commitment and love, following in the footsteps of those that have gone before. May God Bless you on this very special day! Love, Julie and Bill

5 Dear Charlie and Jan – Congratulations on your 50th! It’s quite an accomplishment in today’s world, though we’re not surprised you both made it! I almost remember that day – Dick doesn’t at all (course he wasn’t part of our lives then), but your picture is wonderful – both as a reminder and look how young you were!! Our love and best wishes for you on this your special day! Love, Dick and Noel

6 Dear Mom and Dad, Wow…. What a ride it has been over the last 50 years. Look around you to be assured the fruits of your labor have been well worth it. A famous philosopher once said a wedding anniversary is the celebration of love, trust, partnership,tolerance, and tenacity. The order varies with any given year!!! I…no I really mean we…. thank you for everything as you quietly and gently led us through our successes and failures of life Love, Chuck, noemi, matthew, chad, scout and sky Wyatt

7 Happy 50 th Anniversary!!! Dear Mimi and Papa-bear, Happy 50th Anniversary! I love you both so much! Thank you for the many good times in Louisiana! I had so much fun! I hope I can come many more times! I’m looking forward to seeing you soon! Have an amazing anniversary! Love you! SINCERELY, REBEKAH (A.K.A. BEKAH)

8 Dear Mimi and Papa Bear, Happy 50th Anniversary. I am so happy for the two of you. Fifty years is a huge landmark in ones relationship. I know that you have always been there for me throughout my life. You helped me while I was in high school learning about responsibility. You helped get me into college and stay on the right track during my stay. Your random visits always brightened my weekend. Throughout every turn in my life, you have been there to support me. I couldn't ask for better grandparents. I know you have been through many trials in your relationship. You have not always been on each others good side. In a time when people divorce over the smallest argument, it is re-insuring to see relationships that are strong. That are lasting. That have made it through the trials and tribulations that come with marriage. Congratulations on your 50 years of marriage. I can only hope to have a marriage as successful as yours. I am proud to have you as my grandparents. Love Your Grandson, Trey

9 Dear Mimi and Papa Bear, Thank you so much for being there for me over all these years. I love you so much and I pray that your anniversary is as amazing as you are. (Please excuse the corny expression.) Anyways, I love you so much! Happy Anniversary! Love- Sarah

10 Happy Anniversary Mimi and Papa Bear. There are so many good memories I had with you that I could never forget. There were all of the times in North Carolina and the new ones in Louisiana. You guys have been married 50 years can you believe it! Isn’t that so cool. Well, you are so much fun and so loved. Have an amazing anniversary I Love you, Love - Catherine

11 Dear Mimi and Papa Bear, I hope you have an AMAZING anniversary! We’ve had so many good memories together!!! Like in North Carolina when Andy, my dad, and I hiked up the mountain, and Andy wore his orange hat that he had just made because it started raining. But then, it started raining so all of the orange went into Andy’s hair!!! We’ve also had a lot of good memories when we go to Remingtons. Also, when we reupholstered our living our chairs!!! We have had many good times and I hope that you have a great anniversary!!! Love, Julia

12 Dear Mimi and Papa Bear, Have a great time on your anniversary. I hope you have as much fun or more as the time we got lost on the way to Blockbuster. I thought I knew where it was, but I apparently didn’t. So I hope you guys enjoy your anniversary. Love you both very much! Love, Andy

13 June 267h, 2008 Jan and Charlie Where does a half of a century go? It seems like just yesterday we were at the South Bend Country Club decorating for mom and dad’s 50th Wedding Anniversary. Mom, Dad and Sally are all gone now. Our kids are grown and in your case their children are now young adults. Where does the time go? I tried to find some good pictures from the past but I think you and Sally have them. So I only have pictures in my memory – it is getting a little rusty with age! I still can remember your wedding day and that I recorded it on audio-tape – I must have been a geek even as a kid! I think the prime measure of a marriage’s success is if your children manage the journey to adulthood without too many scars and are successful. It takes a lot of luck but it also takes caring and loving parents! We all have ups and downs in a marriage but yours has been a great success – you have nurtured three great children. Now if you two could attend to two issues in the future you would have the greatest marriage in the world! 1. Agree how to get from point A to point B without arguing. I know you are both right! 2. Listen to Dad. “Even in retirement – save for a rainy day!” - Just kidding! Congratulations on your 50th Wedding Anniversary! May you have another 25 years! Love John and Sue - We hope to make it to Louisiana – in the next year

14 Dear Charlie and Jan, Hardiest congratulations from Denver on your golden achievement and welcome to the club!! Phyllis and I recently celebrated ours as well. Also special recognition and thanks to your grandson Trey on his graduation from the Naval Academy. You should be extremely proud of your landmark anniversary and your wonderful family. Charlie, it was always great fun being in Mr Leeds homeroom where all us "rowdies" were quarantined in room 114- I'm sure you remember some of the stunts!! It was always good playing ball with such a good shortstop (although I usually watched from the bench as a pinch hitter- too bad Harry Hannum took over for Ray Farnham!). I remember riding the bus home from school to Ridge and Montgomery Road. I can verify for your grandchildren that you and I walked about a half a mile down Ridge Ave. where I lived and you had to walk at least another mile down Ridge and over Section Rd. to Fair Oaks! Tough guy your grandfather!! It was great getting to play golf with you at our 50th reunion- icing on the cake our beating Freytag, Young, Wachs and Myers! Hope we get the same opportunity at our 60th (God willing). I hope your grandson enjoys the Navy as much as our son Paul has. Paul flew F-14's for six years and will retire as a Captain from the Reserves this Fall. His daughter graduated last month from the College of Charleston- probably the same age as your grandson. Best wishes to you and your family for a grand celebration! Tip one for me- we'll be thinking of you! Your Friend, Paul

15 CONGRATULATIONS JAN AND CHARLIE ON 50 YEARS OF A WONDERFUL MARRIAGE!!! How LUCKY and BLESSED you have been to have each other for a LONG and HAPPY LIFE!! I remember the weekend of June 27th, I had just graduated from High School and you had invited me to be one of your beautiful bridesmaids. I was TRULY THRILLED!! Mother, Dad Mary and I drove over to Cincy in the new Cadillac and what a BEAUTIFUL AND FUN WEEKEND WE ALL HAD!!! Your wedding ceremony and reception was "out of this world"!!! Aunt Sally and Uncle Nelson were so proud of both of you. They LOVED Charlie like their own son!! Ed and I have missed many of our Blair family reunions and we truly regret not having these family memories. Having a home in the West has complicated out summer plans in the East. We leave for Jackson Hole today and will spend 12 weeks in the mountains. It is hard to leave one life and pick up on another. OUR DEAREST LOVE TO BOTH OF YOU AND ALL YOUR VERY SPECIAL FAMILY!!! Hugs and Kisses, Barbara and Ed

16 CONGRATULATIONS JAN AND CHARLIE. WOW 50 YEARS!!! YOU TWO HAVE BEEN BLESSED TO HAVE EACH OTHER AND 3 WONDERFUL CHILDREN. I REMEMBER GOING TO CINCINNATI FOR YOUR WEDDING. THEN THE MILES CAME BETWEEN ALL OF US AND EVERYONE BECAME BUSY WITH THEIR OWN LIVES. I ALWAYS KNEW MY COUSINS WERE OUT THERE AND WOULD KEEP IN TOUCH WITH EVERYONE THRU MOM. I REMEMBER THE FAMILY RENUNIONS WHERE WE WOULD ALL COME TOGETHER AND CATCH UP ON OUR LIVES. THE MOST RECENT WAS IN YOUR LOVELY HOME IN CASHIERS, NORTH CAROLINA. THAT WAS A WEEKEND I WILL NEVER FORGET. I HAD NEVER BEEN IN THAT PART OF NORTH CAROLINA AND NOW I KNOW WHY YOU BOTH LOVED THAT PART OF THE COUNTRY. WHAT MEMORIES YOU MUST HAVE. I KNOW THAT MOM WAS SO GLAD SHE WENT AND WAS ABLE TO SEE EVERYONE. WE ALL HAD A GLORIOUS TIME. YOU BOTH WERE GREAT HOSTS SHARING YOUR LIFE AND FAMILY WITH US. NOW YOU BOTH ARE CLOSE TO TWO OF YOUR CHILDREN AND STARTING ANOTHER CHAPTER IN YOUR LIVES TOGETHER. I AM SURE YOU ARE ENJOYING YOUR GRANDCHILDREN AND MAKING MANY MEMORIES WITH THEM. JAN AND CHARLIE MAY YOU HAVE MANY MORE YEARS TOGETHER MAKING MEMORIES AND SHARING WITH YOUR FAMILY. MAY GOD BLESS YOU BOTH AND KEEP YOU IN GOOD HEALTH. HUGS AND KISSES, MARYELLENYOUNG

17 Jan and Charlie: Congratulations on a rare accomplishment; 50 years, WOW! Charlie, we had great times together which seemed to revolve around baseball. One memory I'll never forget is when you and I, as freshmen at Walnut, were selected by coach Farnum to suit-up with the varsity for a district tournament game. They scrounged-up some sorry-looking uniforms for us, and off we went on the bus with the varsity players. As I recall, the game was against West High. Walnut had a good team, and my hero was first baseman St. Clair. He was very nice and supportive of me on the bus ride. I was so crushed that we lost. I guess Farnum had great hopes for us.. To bad Hannum didn't feel the same way about me. Again, Congratulations. Stay healthy and continue to enjoy the magic you share. Betsy and Alex

18 To the best "Sergeant Major" this Marine ever had... and to his bride of 50 years, the best historian Cashiers Valley ever had: "Come on, People: Celebrate in style and have some fun!" Best wishes from Linda and Carl Mundy

19 Dear Charlie and Jan – Congratulations on your 50th! It’s quite an accomplishment in today’s world, though we’re not surprised you both made it! I almost remember that day – Dick doesn’t at all (course he wasn’t part of our lives then), but your picture is wonderful – both as a reminder and look how young you were!! Our love and best wishes for you on this your special day! Love, Dick and Noel

20 Jan and Charlie, Congratulations on reaching 50 years together. Sandy and I are looking forward to the trip this fall to learn more about our ancestors and to have fun remembering our lives together. It will be great!! Chris and Sandy As to a story I would like to ask Jan and Charlie to answer a few questions about their wedding night and the first night of their honeymoon. So, here are the questions: !. Have Jan and Charlie describe the creative evening attire for their wedding night that was so thoughtfully made by Aunt Ann, Uncle Don, and Noel. Please have them describe in detail,and you must remember that this was in 1959 and not Have Charlie describe the pajamas he wore for the first night on their honeymoon and what was Jan's reaction to them. I hope they still remember these two evenings but if not, Noel has the answer to #1 and I have the answer to #2.

34 Jan and Charlie, First of all, CONGRATULATIONS! How lucky Lafayette was to get you. I have been so impressed with how quickly you gave to a community that you had barely had time to get to know. You immersed yourselves into our town civically, immediately, and have made a difference quickly. Your involvement has made Lafayette an even better place to live. This is what makes Lafayette so very different than so many places in America. People like you, who give much more than you could ever receive back. So, thank you for everything you have done and will continue to do for Lafayette and Acadiana, but most of all on this occasion, congratulations on 50 years together. Sincerely, Joey

35 What to say about Mr Chariie and Mrs Jan Well to start off they are two lovely people both inside and out. It sounds cliche but it is very much true. I have become close to each of them through their tireless work with the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra. Both of them are always up for the challenge and can organize an event perfectly. Mr Charlie is a kind giving and fun man and Mrs Jan is a spunky matter of fact planner. Perhaps the thing that I will always hold dear to my heart is the way that they still look at each other after all these years. Their love for each other is strong and definately makes an impression on a young person like myself. Wishing you many more Mr Charlie and Mrs Jan Michelle Nicole DeRouen

36 It certainly is my pleasure to add to all the congratulatory messages that you pair will be receiving for your 50th wedding anniversary; Two years ago your son announced that he was not able to participate as well as he would prefer on the ASO Board but offered up his Father as a substitute - of course what he did not tell us at the time, was that we would not only be getting a dynamo replacement but also one of the sweetest and talented women I have yet to encounter!!! The Acadiana Symphony Orchestra, and Ande Hakeman personally, are blessed to have you both. Ande Hakeman Acadiana Symphony Orchestra President-Elect

37 Congratulations, Jan and Charlie!!! Whenever I think of you two and all the things we shared when we lived on Grape Road and you lived on Carew, I can not help but remember “basket ball shoot outs”, “Halloween Parties”, “Chopping wood in Crosby to save on firewood with dire consequences”, “The Garden Club”, and “Duplicate Bridge”. Roger and I celebrated our 50th two years ago and loads of memories came flooding back. I hope you have a wonderful year and have had something great planned to celebrate. We truly miss seeing you and are thrilled you now live so close. Hopefully, we can get together for a long visit. Let’s keep in touch! Love, Gayle and Roger

38 Congratulations on your 50 years. We first met you upon moving to Houston in 1965 because our friends in Chicago, the Peays told us to call you. I remember arriving at your house on Carew one evening to be greeted by bat man in full dress. (Chuck) I also remember your telling us that you would help us get settled and could fill us in on doctors etc. One of those gifts was Ed Heyne who has been our dentist for 40 years even the 6 years we lived in Atlanta on trips back to Houston to our corporate headquarters. I was glad when you moved to Queensbury, and then there was bridge club and Holy Spirit Church. Your girls and mine became friends in Sunday School. We still remember the delightful afternoon we spent with you for a superb lunch at your fantastic Cashiers home. What an elegant way to retire. We will be in the mountains (Maybe) in October. We will call you. The two of you sure don't look any older than this picture!!!!!!!!! Our best wishes for many more years. Jeanne and Henry

39 Dear Jan and Charlie...Thinking of you both on this special occasion celebration. "Life's truest happiness is found in the friendships we make along the way." "Friends share special times together"..I am thankful that we have had some special times together. Your friendship has been so wonderful...thank you. The memories of our times together are very dear to me. Have a wonderful time with your memories and celebrate a great milestone. Love, Bettsy

40 I don't have any photos. etc.; but I do have a lot of fond memories of the many ways in which this wonderful couple touched my life. It started when Mary mentioned that her Shoe Hut buddy, Jan, had a daughter about to be married when our daughter, Carol, was also engaged. Needless to say the Mom's had a lot to talk about other than shoes. Subsequently, years latter, while we were looking for a smaller place to live, Jan called, out of the blue, to invite us to look at The Fairways. This led to dinner at their house with neighbors and, shortly thereafter, we bought a lot, built a house, moved in, joined Willow Fork, became regulars a Charlie's table for Wednesday Night Buffets and were included in a variety of neighborhood activities. Unfortunately, during this same period we learned that Mary had cancer and early in 2000 she passed away. Thereafter, Jan and Charlie were very supportive and invited me to Cashiers for a short vacation only to discover that I had developed a prostate infection, which required Charlie to drive me to the hospital during a rainstorm in the middle of the night. They were very concerned and I'm sure Chuck received at least one call for advice; but I was very embarrassed and determined not to be a kill joy so, equipped with a catheter, I completed my visit, and thoroughly enjoyed myself including playing as Charlie's partner in a local Member Guest tournament, which we won! The most recent chapter began with a dinner at their house where I got acquainted with Pam, who later sold their house and is now my wife. Please pass on my thanks and congratulations to this truly great couple!! Joe Kelly

41 Congratulations on your 50th anniversity and knowing the two of you and your devotion to each other, I expect to come to the 100th party! Best wishes, Connie and Phil Haire PS The one bad thing we think about you is your moving from Cashiers.

42 Happy Anniversary Jan and Charlie How fantastic to be married for 50 years and have such a wonderful family and so many friends all over the world. You both made such an incredible difference in so many lives in Katy; it was just a blessing to have you in the Fairways and part of Willow Fork. You were always creating fun and friendships and in my case – marriage! If not for you, I doubt Joe and I would have ever found each other, and what a shame that would have been. I offer a toast to many, many more years of happiness and good health and special friends. You are truly lovely people. Pam Ellegood Kelly

43 *** Many happy regards to Jan and Charlie!!!... and many thanks for your support of our books and art work through the years... Love, George & Elizabeth

44 I've only known your parents a year. We are both( your parents and my husband and I) new to Lafayette and your mother and I have a mutual love of cooking. Your mother, as you know, is Chair of the Symphony's 25th Anniversary. She is very good at convincing people to do things (I'm sure you know that too!). Anyway, she convinced me to take on the task of creating a cookbook in honor of the Symphony. My first meeting with her consisted of pouring through her vast collection of cookbooks for ideas and then "signing out" a few to take home with me. She is so organized that she actually has a lending library - I was quite impressed. I know you father helps her stay organized - it really is a match made in heaven and it's wonderful to know both of them. The love and friendship for each other is lovely to see. Susan Clarke

45 Dear Jan and Charlie, What an honor it was to celebrate your 50th wedding anniversary with family and friends! Congratulations on this milestone in your marriage and on your remarkable family! I have truly enjoyed getting to know you and Charlie during our campaign to benefit the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra and its 25th anniversary season. How lovely and appropriate that we have come together to celebrate both silver and gold! The two of you are treasures to those of us fortunate enough to know you and to our community for your tireless efforts on our behalf. Best wishes! Virginia

46 Charlie and Jan Wyatt June 26, 1959 I made a little drawing and changed a few things. Charlie, I hope you like wearing electric blue tuxes. Jan, your wedding dress is not as luminous a white as I’m sure it must have been on your wedding day, and though you most likely did not wear such garish lipstick (I happen to like red.) or carry a big red flower, as an artist, I can take those liberties. Some things I can change, some I can not replicate. Jan, thrilled with Charlie, eyes filled with a bit of mischievousness. Charlie, happy, relaxed, sure, a rock. Though I’ve not seen this photograph before, I am not surprised you both have the same look today as you did the day you began your journey through life as a married couple. Happy 50th Anniversary!

47 We first met Jan and Charlie in Greenville, SC, in connection with the William Holland Thomas Symposium they sponsored in Cashiers, NC. We took to them like ducks to water, and they reciprocated. Although we have known them only a few years, we feel like we have known them all of our lives, and they are very special and dear friends. We have exchanged visits in each other's homes, and we look forward to more of the same. You 3 kids are so lucky to have Jan and Charlie for your parents, and we are so lucky to have them for friends in our golden years! Our warmest congratulations! Jeannie & Stanly Godbold

48 Jan and Charlie, Congratulations on having reached the milestone of 50 years together! You have been such a blessing to us in Cashiers and we miss you dearly. We have a couple pictures that will remind you of all the time and effort you put into the Zachary-Tolbert House and the Historical Society to make it what it is today. Loved seeing you at the Symposium. God's blessings on you for many years to come. Arlene & Emmit

49 Jan and Charlie, Wow!!!! Congratulations on fifty years of marriage and best wishes for many, many more. Kam and Mazie Movassaghi

50 A message from Betty and David Higgins on the occasion of Charlie and Jan's 50th anniversary. We are glad to see you newly weds (we are going for #56 this year) have finally made it far enough to determine that the grass on this side of the fence is pretty good after all. Best wishes from the mountains. Come see us.
