A Happy Diversion

I know I promised to take you on my journey to self-pubbing, but I’m interrupting that journey for a family celebration. My 86 years old father, David Jones, has been living in an assisted living home for the past 3-4 years. A year ago, a lovely lady named Marie moved in and was assigned to my dad’s dining table. She was warm, delightful, and beautiful and my dad fell in love.

The story of their relationship was of him slowly coaxing her into loving him. He would help her with walking. They would meet in his room to watch her DVD’s on his computer…with the door open, of course. They went on the trips the home arranged for the clients and she would join us at the Elk’s lodge for our weekly family dinners.

Yesterday, this two lovely people exchanged vows. The center decorated a waiting room and there was cake and punch for everyone. Not only were both familes present, but many of the other residents came. The minister gave a lovely service and a good time was had by all.

Welcome to the family, Marie. And thank you for making my daddy so happy.

    No wonder you write romance, Jackie. It’s in your genes. What joyous news, you dad and Marie. You mentioned his age, but not hers. Curious.

    Aaaaaw! That’s so sweet. I absolutely want to see pictures.
    BTW: Will Marie be taking your dad’s last name?
    What is (was?) her last name?
    Tell your daddy we’re thrilled for him!
