Celebrating an anniversary

The Holcombes

Ken and Jean Holcombe are celebrating an anniversary this month.
The couple met at Buster Joyner’s Ice Cream Parlor when it was on South Main Street. They met in July and married November 19, 1951.
When asked the secret to a long marriage, Jean said, “You’ve got to give. God’s help is the main thing.”
Jean said she prayed before they married, “If he’s not the right one, put a stumbling block in our path. God didn’t even put a pebble. I knew he was the right one.”
The Holcombes reside in Bay Minette. They have one son and two daughters.
