Once upon a time there was a young woman that was very sad and lonely. She had been through several horrible years and thought she couldn’t bear anymore. Across town there was a young man going through almost the same, but was drowning his sorrows.

God was watching these two and knew what they needed, for he had planned it from the start. Their paths had crossed so many times, but they had missed the clues every time. Instead they had tried to live their way not God’s.

This time they would confront their destinies’ head on, their last chance to choose the right path. With the help of an angel named Doris, they ended up in the right place at the right time.

Their bond was instant, love at first sight, soul mates bound together for all time. They felt hope and completeness for the first time in their lives. It was as God had planned all along.

They had their first date a week later, saying “we’ll just be friends, no commitments”. Today they celebrate 25 years of marriage. Some years rough and bumpy, but God paved the way and they kept on course. They’ve learned to trust in God and each other to weather any storm.

They have built a wonderful legacy of love. Along the way they became a family with 3 beautiful daughters and 6 amazing grandchildren. So many memories and more to come, forever and ever through the end of time and beyond.

This is the story of Mark and Nora Grudis,

and our unbreakable bond for all time.


Forever n ever till the end of time and beyond I will always love you Markiejoe.
