Together with Kathy, we traveled for the first time out to Spokane, Washington to attend the wedding of my beloved Godson
Godson Rick Wallis and his bride Anna were married in the beautiful back yard of a family friend on a gorgeous Sept 29 in their home town of Spokane. Rick is my nephew, being the middle child of cousin (really sister) Diane nee Johnson Wallis and her husband Rich.
Also in attendance from the Johnson contingent were cousins Sue & Barb with their spouses and favourite Auntie Joyce with her husband Jim. They were married in a unique ceremony by a Pastor Dan - as the minister from Rich & Diane's church was away on holiday.
Anna is a lovely woman who seems to be similar to Rick in many ways - and one couldn't help but notice how well suited they seemed to be for each other. She looked lovely in her wedding gown and is already a tremendous asset to our family. It is no secret that she likes me best of all Rick's relations.

Picture below is a favourite photo of mine taken in 1979 entitled the "Four Richards". In it are my father, with me holding baby Ricky and the proud father on the right - all of us named Richard.
Photo on the bottom is a beauty featuring Rick & Anna along with Rick's older brother Rusty and lovely younger sister Mindy. A great bunch of kids with a great future ahead of them.
