Most people cannot project their lives out thirty years from the present day and accurately imagine what life will be like. For those of you old enough to remember thirty years ago, think about it: how much has changed in that timespan? The cars, the technology, the language, the fashion and hairstyles (yikes!), the pace-of-life—everything. For Southgate Coins’ owners, Rusty and Marie Goe, they are proud to say that thirty years after their wedding date on January 22, 1983, they are still happily married, and best friends. That statement is rarer than any coin in the shop.
If Rusty and Marie had nothing else, they’d still have hundreds of stories (and thousands of pictures!) to share about the time they’ve spent together. Everything from the businesses they’ve owned to the friends they’ve made, joyous occasions to tough times, all gets wrapped into this neat little bow they call matrimony.
There’s something special to be said for devoting your life to another. Rusty and Marie have intertwined their history irrevocably, and become a loving, united front, ready to take on whatever the future has in store for them.
Nicole, Emily, and I (Maya) wish the Goes the happiest anniversary, complete with good friendship and good stories of yesteryear. Congratulations to both of you!
Happy Anniversary from your Southgate Girls, with love,
Maya, Nicole, and Emily
