Our parents Mel and Sue Prather celebrated 35 years of marriage on August 10, 2008. They met as classmates at Sehome High School in 1969. Dad graduated in 1970 and Mom graduated in 1971. They were married at Faith Lutheran Church in Bellingham in 1973. Dad retired from Arco/BP Refinery in 2007, where he was a Machinist for 21 years. Mom worked in Human Resources at Arco/BP Refinery for 23 years until early retirement in 1995. She is currently working as Senior Human Resources Generalist at Horizon Bank in Bellingham. They shared a passion for working on home improvement and displaying their uniquely restored cars at various car shows in Whatcom County. We believe our parents have maintained a loving relationship through mutual respect and keeping each other balanced through the years. A love that lasts a lifetime is something to be cherished. We are forever grateful for the wonderful memories their marriage gives to us. We are so proud to be your daughters, and our wish for you is a future as bright as the love you have given to us.
-Love your daughters, Jan and Jennifer
