|The Wedding Party|
Twenty-four years ago today our daughter Anne Marie married her high school sweetheart Chad. He was by then in the Air Force, and had just completed basic training followed by another training session in some computer area. He had a brief leave before checking in at his posting in Florida.
|The Bride and Groom|
Grandma Rose, super seamstress, made Anne Marie's wedding gown and one of the bridesmaid's dresses. I made the dress for the youngest bridesmaid, and the other bridesmaid's and the flower girl's dresses were made by their respective mothers. I'm certainly glad that the men did not require sewing--Anne Marie and Chad had given us only about a month to get ready for a wedding!
We already loved Chad. He'd been in our home a great deal over the past four years, and we were happy to have him as our son-in-law. He is a good man, a good husband and father, and a good son to me.
So--Happy Anniversary, Chad and Anne Marie!
