    TITUS of nevada in the house of representatives Tuesday, December 15, 2015 Ms. TITUS. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the golden wedding anniversary of Dwayne and Carol Chestnut, two dear friends, respected community leaders, generous philanthropists, and loyal Democrats. They have three children, Kay, Michelle, and Mark, and two grandchildren, Darrel and Danielle Jobe.

    Carol and Dwayne met as teenagers in high school when, coming out of class, he held the door open for her. Carol responded, ``It is good to know that there are still gentlemen and scholars left.'' Dwayne was smitten and holds the door for Carol still today.

    When Carol and Dwayne were courting in Texas in the early fifties, their favorite song was ``Too Young'' by Nat King Cole. Its words were prophetic: ``This love will last though years may go.'' The joy they find in each other spills over into the numerous lives, including my own, which they have touched over the fifty years they have been together.

    Congratulations. Here's to many more good times and sweet memories to come.
