Robert & Bonnie--July 14, 1946
Robert tells that an aunt of his kept trying to get his Mother to come visit their little church & his Mother always had the excuse that she didn't have a good dress. But she bought a new dress for his wedding, and after that had no excuse & began attending church with Aunt Lindy!
The Bride--18 years old!
Times were hard back in 1946. Robert worked for the railroad & Bonnie worked in a doctor's office. They lived in a very small upstairs apartment, later moving to where they had a little more room.

& Grandmother Amelia
Although they were young, and no doubt their marriage went through rough times along with the good ones, they have been faithful to keep beside each other through good times & bad. May they have many more happy years together!
