When James T. Godwin saw Myra Jean Oswald in her yellow sun dress at a spring dance in 1949, he was smitten – and he’s remained so for 60 years.

James and Jean Godwin, formerly of Quincy and now living in Atlantic Beach, celebrated their 60th anniversary Nov. 7 with a family dinner.

Married Nov. 12, 1949 at the bride’s home in Greenwood, the couple has spent the past 30 years traveling to Germany, France, England and most of the United States. They have two daughters: Cynthia Godwin of Quincy and Melody Godwin of Atlantic Beach.

God had a special plan that spring night when He brought them together. They are true sweethearts, a blessing to their daughters and a joy to all who know them.
