Twenty years ago today, my dad and Linda tied the knot! I still remember the day. They were married in my hometown of Mena, Arkansas, at Grace Bible Church, the church I attended from the time I was born until I left for college. I was a bridesmaid. I can still picture my dress. It was a floor length, v-neck dress with a flower print…lots of flowers. I’ll also never forget a little incident that happened mid-way through the ceremony. My sister, Jill, who was standing right next to me, almost passed out. My grandpa (my dad’s dad) was sitting on the front row and thankfully he was fast on his feet because he caught her! Poor thing had to be taken out of the sanctuary but recouped in time for the reception! So there you have it, a recap of their wedding day from my perspective…the littliest bridesmaid. I was almost 13.
Happy 20th Anniversary, Dad and Linda! Thank you for being a wonderful example to us! We love you very much and hope you enjoy your special day together!
