[Overlooking Casco Bay, Harpswell Neck, Maine; Sunday, September 19, 2010]

Lizzie’s grandmother (my mother) participated in all of the wedding events and hosted a Sunday champagne brunch for the wedding party and all of the guests, more than fifty people in all.

“Grandmommy” attracted quite a bit of attention, and, despite being tired, she was lovely and gracious throughout the long four-day weekend.

My mother was elected “May Queen” at Averett College (Danville, Virginia) in 1940 (shown). That was seventy years ago. It was yesterday.

We are here such a short time.

    Fabulous diptych! The first thing I noticed was how much Lizzie favors your mom in her May Queen photo. I love your song choices, too.

    Very nice diptych. I think I mentioned this before on one of the earlier pictures of your daughter, but she sure does resemble your mother especially on your mother's 1940 portrait.

    Sorry for being so late in commenting, Richard. The rain and winds along the coast knocked us off the internet, as we have satellite connection. NOW, I would like to say that you are one very fortunate man. You have had so many fantastic ladies in your life. What a classy and beautiful Mother you have. I know from your past narratives and photos that she loves you dearly and has been a wonderful mother. Your wife is a jewel....she truly sparkles with beauty, joy, and is a marvelous mother herself. I'm sure your daughters are all following in this family tradition of giving much love and joy to you and everyone they love and hold dear. It has been such a pleasure to meet you, and to meet your family through these fabulous stories and descriptions of such important pieces of your life. You have most certainly been blessed! Warm Wishes to you and yours from Dave and Patty!
