"I Remember When . . ." takes the time.
"As soon as Frank was discharged, we made plans to be married on May 20, 1946. We didn't plan an elaborate wedding. Neither family could afford it, and we had just a few hundred dollars between us. We chose to be married on a Monday in the rectory of St. Matthew's Church in Cranston. At that time, a Protestant and a Catholic weren't allowed to be married at the altar. Just our immediate families attended and we planned to hop into our rented convertible after the ceremony and travel to Bungalow Village in New Hampshire for our honeymoon trip. Upon leaving the church, my brother Charlie invited everyone to stop at his house. What a nice surprise! He and his wife Tootsie had a lovely lunch reception for us, wedding cake included. We will always remember his thoughtfulness."
