New Years Eve, 1951


Those of you on Facebook already saw this pic, but I wanted to share it here too.  This has long been one of my favorite photos. These are my parents on December 31, 1951, the night they were engaged. They married on December 27, 1952.  My father died at 49 in 1978, cutting short one of the most perfect marriages ever.  My mother is almost 82 and still alone after all these years.
I know that there isn't a New Year's Eve that my mother doesn't reminisce about that special day in 1951.
I hope you all have a great celebration of the incoming new year!
