It was truly an amazing day, that almost didn't take place. My husband Dick was diagnosed with a brain tumor on September 6th. We decided to keep it a secret so that our daughter Amanda's wedding would take place before we were to tell family and friends. Our plan sure backfired when Dick had a seizure the night before Amanda and Ralph were to marry. Luckily, the wonderful staff at UMass was able to stabilize him and the wedding was held. It was an absolutely beautiful wedding and we want to thank all our friends and family for their support during this difficult time. You all mean the world to us! And thank you to everyone who made it possible!
