Wedding Pictures
















Hey, Y'all,



It was a beautiful wedding...here are some pictures to illustrate that fact. I was so pleased to be given the place of honor of "grandmother" for Rachael in the wedding party. I have been rather filling that place in their lives since about fourteen years ago, when I became their "Aunt Ruby". When they moved to New Market, and we discovered that Mark and my son-in-law, Daryl, are first cousins, we became "family" and I consider Allie as a daughter, and she calls me her "Mom". Her mother and Mark's mother have passed on, and so I am probably the closest thing their children have as a grandmother.

Hence, I was escorted in and seated, then Allie was escorted in and seated next to me, just before the wedding attendants came in. It was so sweet, and I appreciated it so very much. Their family means so very much to Gramps and me.
Well, I have posted all the pictures that the site will do right now. Maybe I can do some more tomorrow morning.
My brother, Hugh, has a doctor's appointment on Wednesday, but I don't know which doctor yet, since he has three that he sees regularly.

As I said earlier, I have many more pictures but am having a little problem with some of them uploading. Will try more later.
This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for the present. I am working on a baby quilt for Jessie's baby due this month. More later. Love to you all. Bye for now.

Beautiful pics!
Wow...Daryl looks more like James Earl than Mark these days! (Guess it's the beard...) Is Phil Sharon's husband?
