50+ Mr. and Mrs. Cecil Dowell

SAN ANTONIO — The sons and daughters-in-law of Cecil and Joyce Dowell hosted a 60th Wedding Anniversary gathering for the couple on Sunday, May 6. The 2-4 p.m. come-and-go reception at Avalon Memory Care here saw new and long-time friends and brethren from different congregations come in with cards and hugs.
The Army Air Force Veteran and his wife were married on May 8, 1958, and raised five sons: Frank, Sid, Tad, David and Craig. The two share a favorite song that they credit with strengthening the bond between them, “Angry Words.” The lyrics begin: “Angry words, oh, let them never from the tongue unbridled, slip.” Many people remember it best for the chorus, which starts, “Love one another / Thus sayeth the Savior, / Children, obey the Father’s blest command.”
