I looked over at the ordering line where Sherry was and she was hugging Steve. We haven’t seen these two in a year or more. What is unique about Steve and Linda is they have been married about 54 years. Two beautiful daughters and now they are Great grandparents.
Most folks know that in another life, between the USAF and the USN, I thought I was a preacher. Sherry and I organized and built the New Hope Church in Belmont. Linda was a kid, she and her family were charter members of the church. Steve came a little later and became the choir leader. There were many young folk there, Linda and her sister played the piano. Steve and Linda were 17. Something I learned this morning they were born on different days but less than 24 hours apart.
They fell in love and asked me to perform the ceremony and hitch them up. Since I had been 17 when we got married I could hardly refuse, and they were in love.
So yep, I must be old to have performed the ceremony for a couple who are Greatgrandparents.
Anyway, that is my shock for today. LOL
