Paul and Jane (Flachs) Ringler of Cedar Springs will celebrate their silver wedding anniversary on September 25, 2012. Paul and Jane struck up a friendship the moment they met at Tri-County middle school in Howard City. In 1983 they walked hand in hand to receive their high school diplomas together. Four years later, after college and securing jobs, they were married on a gorgeous fall day at Christ The King Catholic Church, September 25, 1987, surrounded by friends and family. The first 9 years of marriage were some of the best times, but their lives truly had meaning when they began adopting their 4 children in 1996. Hanna is now 16, Jordan is 13, Ryan is 11 and Grace is 9. Paul and Jane would like to thank their parents for their never ending love, guidance and for demonstrating good moral judgment, hard work, forgiveness, patience and never forgetting that GOD is the foundation. Anniversary cards are being gratefully accepted at 377 W. Cherry St., Cedar Springs, MI 49319.
