Cherished Memory #23 – Being in my sister, JoAnne’s wedding.
It was July 1963. I was eight. My sister, JoAnne was getting married and she asked me to be her flower girl! I was SO excited. I got to have my own bouquet and had shoes dyed to match my dress. I had some dorky bow in my hair but that didn’t matter. I’m the little one right in front!
The ceremony was long, but the reception was great and I even got to sit at the special table with the Wedding party instead of with my parents. How grown up I felt! My dress had a little flounce in the skirt so it was cool when I twirled. I tried to catch the bouquet when she threw it but I wasn’t quite tall enough.
Sadly, my sister and brother-in-law have both passed away, but what great memories! They (and my parents), were the best role models for a happy marriage. Miss them lots…
