On my other blog, I have written some articles about the importance of remembering. So I will periodically trace that idea by “remembering” some of the events in our life that preceded this blog. The first remembrance is of our wedding. On a September afternoon in 2004, we drove from Louisville to Gatlinburg, Tennessee in the Smokey Mountains to get married. We arrived at the clerk’s office minutes before they closed to get our marriage license. The next day, the 18th, we stood before Leah and Michael Dowdy, Heath, Carlton and Bethany to be wed.
