Jeff and Darla's Wedding - Informal Background
August 5, 1994
In the excitement of chasing around New Orleans in the VW van, we had totally forgotten about putting gas in it! So when we made yet another trip to the New Orleans Airport to pick up Mark, we ran out of gas driving out of the parking lot of the Airport.
Rod will have as hard a time living this one down as the bear incident. Fortunately we had plenty of manpower with us and there was a service station in view. We pushed the van more than a quarter mile to the service station. At least New Orleans is very flat!
The rehearsal dinner was held at Augie's Glass Garden Restaurant in New Orleans. We showed a set of slides of pictures of Jeff and Darla year-by-year from their infancy. It was a nice gathering.
Dave and Judy Moyle and Darla's grandmother from Naples, Florida sat on Darla's right whil Rod and Brenda sat by Jeff.
Jeff's family and friends sat at this table. Andy and Sherry at the end of the table. Jeff's friends Shawn Murphy and Don Sandau ushered in the wedding.
This is the table headed by Dave and Judy. At left, Sara Pagones who sang in the wedding along with her husband. At right Kristin and Stan Lewis.
