Here we are after being married in a candlelight ceremony at Westboro United Church in Ottawa. August 9th, 1968.
We had a very casual pub night in Ottawa last week and were able to celebrate, not only with our own children...Jane home from Belgium, and Gordon from Vancouver, but also with most of our original wedding party.
Our best man, Charles Beach and ma soeur Hélène came from Markham. Darling Janice and Cam surprised us by getting my maid of honour Heather and her husband Peter to attend. My nephew and niece aka the ringbearer and flower girl were there, Shelley having come from Washington State USA. Both brothers and their clan created the usual sort of merriment when 'pints' have been consumed. Larry's Mom was the parental generation link, and Allan, Deb, and Alison Doherty held up the groom's side. It was a great way to re-connect.
Thanks to everyone who was there "then" as you all are "now".
