Roy Jeffrey of Plaistow, N.H., writes that he and his wife, Carolyn, celebrated their sixtieth wedding anniversary last June at Wentworth by the Sea.

Another high point for Roy was the publications of his memoirs, My Story and Other Family Memoirs. It has received lots of positive feedback. He and Carolyn visited Walpole, N.H., this Memorial Day for the dedication of a new war memorial, upon which the names of himself, his brother, and several nieces and nephews who served our country were listed.
