Newton and Helen Floyd: At their wedding

They were joined for this celebration by their family, their older son and family, Randall and wife, Cindy, and grandsons, Michael and Christopher, from Clayton; their younger son, Tim, and wife, Lori, and grandchildren, Audrey and Benjamin, of Portales; and Helen’s brother, Clifton Swope of Albuquerque.

The celebration was spread out over three days of anniversary gift-giving, eating and visiting, culminating in a special lunch at Monroe’s Restaurant in Albuquerque. The couple renewed their vows and held a reception at Camino in Albuquerque.

The Floyds thank their family for the celebration and are thankful to God for His grace, mercy and love that have made 50 years of marital bliss possible.

They pray that more couples will make the decision to stay committed throughout the ups and downs of married life.
