Love Story

57 Year Love Story
Ed & Jackie Ball

I had the honor this year to restore a wedding album for Mr & Mrs Ed Ball who married in Ft. Worth, TX in 1953. I loved visiting with Ed & Jackie as they relived the moments of their wedding. Each B&W 8×10 holds a special memory- Bridal Luncheon, Father of the Bride escorting the bride down the aisle to the Groom standing tall with out the aid of crutches, (Ed suffered from polio), Cutting the cake good friends & family gathered around, their exit into a chilly December afternoon.

Mr Ball called to let me know of Jackie’s passing this morning. He thanked me again for making the album they looked at together so many times before Jackie left us. “Thank you Christy, looking at the album makes us feel younger and stronger.”

My heart is happy when I have made someone else happy.
