On August 8, 1964, I said "I do" to widower David Heckman and his three sons. That was at St. Paul Lutheran Church, Parkersburg, West Virgina. The place where we met and the church in which I grew up. The church has always been the center of our life. Recently our five children and most of our grandchildren celebrated our fifty year anniversary with us and many friends and relatives. Our children organized this event at the Bluebonnet Nature Center. We had a joyful event. Folks came from five states to share with us. Two pictures...one wedding photo and one anniversary photo.
About this exhibit- I started painting little white churches. Then I decided the exhibit need more color for interest. As I worked on this project I realized that these churches were built by the people "All for the Love of God". Which is why I gave that as the title of this show because it is for the love of God.
