Suzanne Mouton Riggio
Story:  On June 13, 2014, my husband Donald Riggio celebrated his 88th birthday.  We had been married since August 30, 1952, almost 62 years earlier.  As I write this, we are waiting for God and remembering our incredible journey together: five wonderful children, the expansion of our family, extensive careers in music and art, and a fruitful retirement.  My sister-in-law’s photograph of the two of us strolling and rolling down the driveway was the inspiration for this birthday gift for Rig, the love of my life.
