August 10, 1947
Charleston IL United Methodist Church
the day my Mom and Dad were married
they did not take many pictures back then, they took 4
they look so happy, Dad so handsome in that suit and Mom looks beautiful in her gorgeous dress.
They met in at the local Ice Cream Shop
they went to different High Schools
Mom had only been back in Charleston 4 years from moving back from Detroit in 1939
But they should of known each other, their Fathers had the same Great Grandfather.
(Mom always said "don't tell people that!")
Dad was drafted into the Army be the time they graduated in 1943
This is what he wrote in my Mom's yearbook. It sums up what that generation had to face.
But he made it home safe and sound and she was waiting for him as he hoped
The time together was too short, but they were happy
their last Anniversary was their 30th
I hope that on this day they are holding each other in heaven
Love you Mom and Dad
Such a sweet and sentimental story. Love the photos!
Great old pictures, they really did look happy on their big day!
What beautiful pictures to remember your parents by! They were sooo happy! One thing for sure....you don't need a lot to be happy...just each other! It's sad they only had 30 yrs. together....my father passed away at 59, my parents shared 35 yrs together. Too short of time for people who loved each other dearly. Blessings and a wonderful week~~~Roxie

What a love story. My parents married in '44 in a simple family only ceremony. They were married 46 years. It's wonderful to see our parents a young sweethearts. And now you created a beautiful memorial to them.
What a beautiful tribute to your beloved parents, Ann. I love the photos. They are clearly brimming with happiness.
