They are the parents of three children: James and Barbara Rafte of Dover, DE; Karen and William Crowley of Rochester, NH and Michael Rafte of Scranton, PA. They have six grandchildren. They thank the Lord for a wonderful married life and the many blessings he has bestowed on them and their family over the years.
