This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

Newlywed Flashbacks...



This picture of Dad and Mom was taken in Bremerton, WA, August 5, 1945, the day after their wedding in front of the Enetai Inn where his parents and sisters stayed when they drove up for Dad and Mom's wedding.  Mom and Dad are leaning up against Dad's Father's car.  Dad and Mom did not own a car at the time and got around through public transportation.

Talk about a good looking couple...so in love.  They knew one another seven months and their marriage lasted 68 years and two weeks.  Not bad....

Hi DonnA. Hope you are coping ok. My goodness , they were indeed such a good looking couple. Your dad looks even more handsome here than he did in the other photo. 68 years - what an achievement. I hope your mum is ok.

So pretty the happy couple! Hi Donna, I pray you're holding up well. In my time of need you gave me much support and encouragement. I'd like to do the same for you. Please know that you are not alone in your pain and we have you & your family in our prayers. I'm back on blogger. Breathing a little better now. Thank you for your advice and love. You're a very special person.
Hugs! Ellie
