She played hard to get and he tried hard to get her. They dated while he was over seas serving our country and when he returned he popped the question! Her mother chose a magazine clipping with an image of a wedding dress in which she made with her own hands. Articles were written in the local newspaper announcing the upcoming marriage of Judy and Clifford on July 14th 1962. Fast forward 55 years later and these two are just as in love as they were back then if not more. God's love shines through them and they have been a wonderful example of love and sacrifice to their children and grandchildren. They continue to show this love to their many great-grand children. I have been blessed to have them in my life and I know that my husband would not be the man he is today with out his amazing grand parents.
It was so neat to see her wedding memories she had kept all these years. The actual center of her bridal bouquet, wedding invitation and wedding album which was her mothers. The newspaper clippings of their marriage and engagement announcements and the exact magazine clipping of the dress her mother made her. Hold on to your special wedding articles so that you can show your children and grand children and maybe even your great-grandchildren one day.
