Men in the Family

Another blurry photo of my parents wedding day.  From left to right,
Uncle Pat  (now Brother Anthony), Uncle Major (Richard Kenneth…
killed in a car accident), Grandpa Malone (Mom’s Dad), Dad, Uncle
Bob, and Grandpa Shaughnessy.  I believe the year was 1947.

Dad and Mom on their wedding day

Upon examining this scan in the photo lab where I work, I expressed my disappointment that it was so blurry.   The head of my department happened to be in the room.  He said something to me that I have never forgotten:  “JoanE, just be glad you have a record of your parents wedding day, blurry or not. ”   This mindset keeps my perspective straight.

One of the little shrine areas inside the Cathedral, a contemplative spot.

This is Notre Dame, in Paris.
