To Louisiana and back

February 18, 2009

Sadly, I’m taking a short break from the blog to go to a funeral in Louisiana. My dad’s Godmother Lorraine died on Tuesday afternoon, and I’m heading to Ponchatoula for the services.

Here’s a pic of her and my dad’s dad, Paw Paw, when they were teenagers.

Lo was so cool and special to me. She met and married late in life to Joe, a man who also had never been married. Both were in their late forties. My favorite story is of their proposal, where he said, “Baby, I want to get down on my knee, but I don’t think I can get back up!”

Here are some pics of their wedding.

I’ll sure miss her.
