As the years passed each of the four children in my family of origin went their separate ways. I hadn't seen him since the execution of my father's will in 2006...6 years ago. He had decided he didn't want to continue a relationship with his siblings. Sad.
I received word of his passing on Thursday evening. I won't get to go to a wake or a funeral. My friends won't be able to gather and comfort me. I am sad about that. I will honor David's wishes though.
Today I needed to comfort myself by writing these words and publishing these pictures of a happier day. David gave me away at our September 16, 1972 wedding. It was a happier day.
Yes I crocheted my gown.
Rest in Peace David
