Shane and Patti celebrated 35 years of wedded bliss on the beach of the JW Marriott on Marco Island. Their children, sons Chris and Colin, and daughter and her husband Callie and Jared as well as a grandchild, Brecken. Three weeks before their original wedding 35 years ago, the couple wrote letters to each. On this special occasion, they read those same letters to each other for their children to hear what they were feeling so many years ago. It was beautiful to hear and see how wonderful their marriage has been all these years. And a great testimony to their children. Shane is retired, and Patti sells real estate. The family has returned Downers Grove, Illinois after celebrating and having family portraits taken.
