Incredibly, these photos were taken on the very day my parents met one another, at a singing school held at a church in Memphis. Aren't they stunning? It's no wonder they fell for each other on first glance! Dreamy. Mother had just graduated from high school and was on her way to college to major in voice.
Daddy's picture is shaped funny because my mother, a teenager crazy in love, cut everyone else out of it!
Those of you who know how my Daddy preaches with his handkerchief will note that he loved his hanky blanky even way back in 1956! He was 17 here, going into his senior year in high school that fall, and was already preaching. I would love to hear those sermons now.
