Ged didn't want to live alone after his first wife, Ruth, passed away,

so occasionally he would bring a lovely lady up with him to dinner and later asked how we liked her.

One of these times he brought Mary Patterson, a lady he met at church.

Dad was a lector and Mary was the choir director.  She seemed to get the okay from everyone,

and not long after that they were married. They were married on May 31, 1980.
