March 17, 1976Dear Mom, Dad, John & Mary,
Hi! Your phone call was a real surprise. Sorry I didn't get a chance to talk longer to Mary. I didn't realize who I was talking to right off.
I didn't understand why Roberta delayed her flight. Did you say she sent you a cable? Is it the 23rd now?
Gerry and I have not made any more definite plans. I think the end of May is too soon, however. Besides that should be John's moment of glory. Getting married in New Vienna is a possibility. What is the law? Can you get married by a Justice of the Peace or does it have to be a preacher? I think if we get married here we will just have a few witnesses – his family numbers in the hundreds. At any rate neither of us feels that the wedding is the big thing. The fact that we can have a good life together is obviously more important. I'll keep you informed.
We had a pretty bad storm here last night. The schools are all closed today. However all us working people still have to go out.
Hope to hear from you soon.
