Today they celebrate 48 years of marriage. The couple have three children: Melanie (Mark) Skillman, Oneonta; Brent (Ellen) Wester, Northport; and Mindy (David) Egan, Oneonta.
“Bop” and “Meemaw” are now retired from brick laying and lunch lady duties and spend their time gardening and doting on grandsons Talmadge and Harrison Skillman, Max and David Wester, Logan Wester and Glen-O Egan.
I promise to love, comfort, honor and keep you for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and health and forsaking all others, be faithful as long as we both shall live. This is what Broyce and Brenda have modeled to their children and grandchildren. Thank you. We love you and wish you many more years together.
