THROUGH THICK AND THIN: Peter and Allie Weppelman celebrate their 40th “Ruby” Wedding Anniversary on Sunday, 18 December. Daughter, Rose Fritz said: ‘Dad, mom needs a ruby ring for staying with you this long and mom, dad needs a gold medal for staying with you this long. You have taught us that through thick and thin our parents have never given up on each other and their marriage vows they hold true: Through sickness and in health, till death us do part. You’ve lived and loved and laughed sailing on a happy dream together down life’s path. We are so blessed to have you as our parents and “zacky” grandparents. Wishing you great joy as you celebrate your anniversary and for all the years ahead too. Lots of Love from your Precious Children, Rosemary, Andrew and Cheryl, Future Son in laws David Ellis and Shane Wendling, Grandson Zackaria Joseph Fritz and extended family Jannie, Jenny, Juan, Kevin Fritz and, Jacky and Alex Garoufalias.’
