SCENE CITY| Ed and Sally share a life of caring, sharing, celebrate 50th

WEDDING anniversaries elicit various emotions from couples, their families and even close friends. This is because their life together has taught them that marriage is sharing the joys and sorrows, years of making the relationship work in sickness and health and caring for children from birth to adulthood.

Now that Ed and Sally have become grandparents, life together is more meaningful. There is a bigger family to love and younger members to care for.

December 21, 2014 was a day to celebrate the fruitful years with the theme “A life of Caring, Sharing…A love of endless giving together…”. The Leuenbergers renewed their marriage vows at the Descalced Carmelites Monastery of the Holy Family in Tugbok, Davao City, where the SUL Orchid Farm is situated a few minutes’ walk away. They were joined by their children, Dr. Edgar Felipe & Dr. Ma. Pilar L. Leuenberger, Mr. Edgardo & Mrs. Kim C. Leuenberger and their grandchildren.
