Posted on Wednesday, November 7, 2012 at 1:46 am

Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Wheeler formerly of Vandalia, Mo., celebrated their 40th Wedding Anniversary at the VFW Hall on Saturday, November 2.  Family and friends gathered to help celebrate this wonderful accomplishment.  Alfred was blessed to have all his 10 brothers and sisters there along with nieces, nephews, cousins, close friends and the Vandalia community. One sister, Donita Lewis of Marina, Calif. was overjoyed to be present. Likewise Gale’s three brothers along with a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and close friends were also present. Mrs. Becky Holley and Mrs. Janie Wheeler were the planning coordinators for this event. The hall was adorned in  purple, silver and white. Purple is a sign of Royalty and the Royal Couple renewed their vows and commitment to each other.  When asked what is the secret of such a long marriage when divorce is at an all time high their answer: Trust and believe in God always.  Today we celebrate their love and commitment to each other and end by saying: “To God  Be  The Glory For All He Has Done.”
