Tell me about your wedding day. What happened? How did you feel? Were you nervous, scared, happy?
Our wedding day...was windy--not uncommon in Kansas. The wedding came off smoothly and beautifully. As a part of the ceremony we sang a duet "Seal us, Oh Holy Spirit." We had many emotions to deal with. I had been offered a job [in] Maryland, and had negotiated a starting date after the wedding.
The wedding marked not only the beginning of a life together, but it marked the saying of "goodbye" to friends, family, and other ties. As we left the church, friends followed our soaped, tin-can-ridden '61 Dodge Lancer--all a-tootin'. I was too successful in letting them chase--we lost them within five short minutes. We then drove to Brenda's house, packed the car, said goodbye to tearful eyes, and set out for Maryland, our new home.
