|Mom and Dad's Wedding|
|Dad racing his sprint car in the early 1950s|
They next saw each other at Uncle Marvin and Aunt Millie's wedding. Dad asked to drive her home and the rest is history. Sort of...Dad said he was going to marry Mom during that ride back to Mom's parents' house. But their wedding didn't happen for another six years. Mom claims she never did say yes. They married just as their license was about to expire.
|My favorite photograph of Dad|
This is one of my favorite pictures of Dad taken on his boat somewhere on the Chesapeake Bay. He does love the water -- and anything with a motor.
Mom is the beautiful one in the family, even today. This picture was taken just after she had her long hair cut. Dad said he was glad she did it. Apparently, she used to put it in a big braid when she went to bed. That braid would hit Dad during the night and wake him up every time she rolled over.
Great marriages are made of memories. Mom and Dad's marriage produced a family that loves each other deeply and holds on tightly to those memories.
