1976 Catherine's Letter -Mar.17

March 17, 1976
Dear Mom, Dad, John & Mary,
          (Serena too?)

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.
