My Wedding Day

Eleven years ago, I married Gerard. Both my mom and dad were happy I found a good man. My mom's health was beginning to fail and she didn't get out much, but she was able to make it to my wedding. Knowing how my dad hated to dress up, I told him that it was okay with me if he didn't want to wear a tuxedo. Dad was relieved at this and looked very nice in his suit. That morning we loaded up the car and when we were ready to go, dad couldn't find his keys. I said he could just use mine because we were already later than mom and I wanted to be, but he insisted he needed to find his. It was kind of funny and it didn't take him too long to find them. He just forgot which pocket he put them in!
