    Wedding

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     MissO56 told me, 'It was shot at my older sister's wedding in November of 1969 in Salem, Oregon (I am the strawberry-blonde in the photo and my younger sister is holding the candle). My mom (who is now 95) made all of the dresses, including the bride's. My sister (the bride) married her high school sweetheart. They were married for only a year when she got very sick with acute leukemia and eventually died in the summer of 1972. I always wondered what life would have been like had she lived.'
