The couple requests no gifts, but cards are welcome.

Gordon Lee Dyer married the former Delores Marie Shaw Aug. 26, 1961, at the Centropolis First Baptist Church.

The two met on a blind date, which was followed by a unique proposal and a wedding on the hottest day of the year. They still have the bell from the church they were wed in in their front yard.
