My parents as children and on their wedding day. This is for the multi-pic challenge. I found these papers a few weeks ago and fell in love with the colors! The pprs are K and Company and I thought they were perfect for this "heritage layout! Journaling is tucked under the big pic on a pull-out tab (with the bow) and reads:
My Daddy, Edward Pierce Perdue, was born on January 15, 1920. My Mama, Ruth Pace, was born on April 3, 1925. Mama was the youngest daughter of a Baptist minister. Daddy’s mother was a seamstress. Mama worked in a post office. Daddy enlisted in the army and served as a sergeant in General Patton’s army. He came home from the war in the fall of 1945. On November 9, 1945, they met for the first time. On December 7, 1945, they were married by my Grandfather, William Wesley Pace. Mama said he cried while he married them. They only knew each other four weeks before they were married. Looking back at their “courtship” now, I can’t imagine getting married to someone after knowing them for only four weeks. Maybe it was love at first sight…maybe it does happen….but for them, the love story lasted for 54 ˝ years. I’m sure it wasn’t a perfect marriage, very few are, but I believe that they were not only husband and wife and mama and daddy…but also best friends. Theirs is the kind of love story that every bride dreams of on her wedding day.
