Don and Diane Blakeslee
This week's Saturday Shout Out is for two love birds: Don and Diane Blakeslee from Clifton Park, NY.
Don and Diane just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on July 25th.
Their children took them to dinner at Verdile's in Troy. This must have been incredibly special for them because this is where Don took Diane on their very FIRST date. The fun continued the very next day when the entire family gathered to celebrate Don and Diane's amazing milestone.
Don and Diane have lived in the Capital Region all of their lives. Don retired from GE in Waterford, and Diane retired from the U.S. Post Office in Clifton Park.
50 years is a huge accomplishment. The commitment and love these two share for one another is beyond beautiful, it's amazing.
Don and Diane have been remarkable role models and continue to show their kids the value of a strong work ethic, hard work, being kind to others, and never giving up, especially when it comes to love.
There is no denying this family is close and surrounded by love, and that is worth showcasing.
Don and Diane congratulations on your love and your beautiful family, CBS6 wishes you good health, and many more years of happiness.
Don and Diane were nominated by their daughter, Dawn Blakeslee.
