the flowers on the trees in the wedding hall.

I flew in that morning, from Norfolk, VA, thru Philadelphia, PA and into Rochester, NY . 

I met two of the bridesmaids for the first time.   I drove to Gredel's mom's house in Stony Point.  One must follow directions rather well in upstate NY or you will drive for hours and not know where you are and if you are almost there or not.   

We were working on numbers for the tables and name settings for the guests.  Katia, one of the bridesmaids is originally from Brazil. She is the wife of a Sailor Gredel was stationed with in Willow Grove PA, near Philadelphia.  Marla was stationed with Gredel in Willow Grove.  And of course the rest of us were in Iraq together.    We totally enjoyed helping Gredel's mom get everything ready.   Gredel's mom, Cindy sent us all care packages while we were over in Camp Bucca Iraq together sweating our asses off.  As you know our deployment to Iraq was 15 months long and we stuck together thru it all!!!

This reunion/wedding was a great reprieval for us to indulge and enjoy.
