31 Years ago.........

Sept. 1, 1978
True Love


My Mom did this whole wedding in her home all the way to
this beautiful wedding cake.

My beautiful Mom.
She is as pretty today as she was then.

Me & My Dad- He is the hardest worker I know besides my sweet honey.
I guess that is where I get it from.

Me & my 2 sisters

My Parents are on the left and Randys mother on the right.
They are all doing great. We are blessed.
Randy's Dad passed away when Randy was 10 years old in a trucking accident.
I would have loved to have known him.

My grandparents are on the left and Randys grandparents are on the right.
There is only one of these grandparents living today.
She is about to turn 96. I bet you can guess who it is.

Sorry about the quality of the pictures but I took the pictures with my camera out of my wedding album. This has been 31 years of heaven with lots of fun. We have had a great time and look forward to many more years. I love him so ............................
We have 4 beautiful children & 4 beautiful grandchildren.
We are proud.

My grandmother passed away when I was 20. Last year at the age of 52 I started quilting. My father took sick and at the end we were talking about grandmas quilts and I asked if he ever got a quilt top. He said no he did any quilts done or tops. I have since visit with my aunt and she has a baby quilt ane a large one put away. She found the baby one and even that many years ago I could hold it and feel that my grandma was there with us. Ny dad is now with her so I know how special these quilts are I only wish I had one to treasure. Maybe I will have to get one of your grandmas.
