Mr. and Mrs. Michael Gross ... then

Michael Edward Gross and Susan Renee (Moeller) Gross, of Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey, recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. They were united in the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony on July 27, 1968, at Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church in Lewistown.

Michael is a retired United States Navy commander. Susan is a retired registered dietitian nutritionist.

Recently the couple took a 35-day adventure around the world covering more than 26,000 miles. To celebrate their actual anniversary, they traveled back to Skytop Lodge in the Poconos, where they spent a week on their honeymoon 50 years ago.

They are blessed to have found true love and friendship that lasts a lifetime. Since they met in college in Philadelphia at ages 18 and 19, they feel fortunate to have shared an extremely positive view of life and living. One of the many reasons love has endured is Susan is very soft spoken, and Mike is hearing impaired.
