Sixteen Candles for our marriage

Yes, it's true. Tamara and I have kept from killing each other for a whole 16 years.

Here's a picture of us on our wedding day (Friday, June 7, 1985).

We were married at the Will Roger's Park Rose Garden. It was a fairly inexpensive wedding but it had all the parts of a wedding we wanted. We were married by a friend that was also a Methodist minister. Our reception was at a nearby hotel and involved much partying but no sit-down meal. Afterwards we went to a trailer in Norman, Oklahoma and on the next Monday I started a new job (that I didn't keep for very long).

We were both in college at the University of Oklahoma and through thick and thin we both managed to graduate. After college there were 2 1/2 years in New York City and 4 1/2 years in Las Cruces, New Mexico before returning to Oklahoma. We've spent the last 5 years in Oklahoma raising our son Duncan and building the next stage in our lives.
