Orange Leader

ORANGE — Mr. & Mrs. Johnnie and Millie Spears, married December 25, 1948, celebrated their 62nd Anniversary on December 25, 2010.  Congratulations from your children:  Ophelia (Tommy) Humble, Texas; Dorothy (Don) Austin, Texas; Ronnie (Janie) Austin, Texas,  Larry (Veronica) Orange, Texas; Annie (Darrell) Grand Prairie, Texas; Cassandra, Arlington, Texas;  Billy Ray (Christina) Grand Prairie, Texas, and a host of grand-children and great grand-children.  Daddy and Momma, thank you for the love, kindness and nurturing the two of you wrapped around our family through good times and sometimes challenging ones.  We thought we knew what love is, but observing the way you have cared for, and loved each other, especially during these last few years, is second to none.  Your example set before us as parents, grandparents, neighbors and friends will be etched on our hearts for a lifetime. May God continue to bless and keep you, and we wish you "Happy Anniversary!”
