Among the guests, the most distinguised was Congressman Bliley. He had
been Evelyn's boss for many years when she worked in his Richmond
office helping constituants.
Bill Camp was there to record the event for posterity. He also recorded
my mother's funeral, so he is starting to feel like an old family
Aiden was a trooper during the service. Here you see him threatening to
raise a fuss. Brandy gave him to Lal, and almost immediately he calmed
down. The guy definately likes his dad a lot.
This woman was the wedding planner. She did a great job of making sure
all of the details of the ceremony went well.
Nora was a surprise guest to me. The last time I talked to her face to
face was early in 1991. At the time we had been an item for years. I
broke up with her because our long distance romance was using way too
much fossil fuel to be sustainable. Maybe we talked a couple of times
on the phone later that year, "that was really it" type conversations.
Since then she has gotten married, had kids, and become more of a
social worker than a nurse. Somewhere in there she had also broken her
hips and forgotten how to walk. I gather learning how to walk again had
been a rough experience for her.
I think these guys work with my father, declassifying old documents
from the cold war time frame at the National Archives.
The couple with Micheal's wife were Evelyn's youngest coworkers when
she was still working in the District Office.
The cake cutting ceremony was about the only part of the day when we
all had to listen to speeches. Both Evelyn and my father talked
glowingly about their futures together.
