This is my mother and father on their wedding day in June of 1954. They met doing summer mission work among the Navajo of Utah, and were married in my mother's sister's backyard in Salt Lake City. At the left of the photo are my dad's parents, Robert and Mary Vogt; and on the right is my mother's mother, Rosa Deckard. I'm not sure why my mother's father is not there. Perhaps he didn't attend the wedding. The most unusual thing about my parents was that my mother was 32 when she married, and six years older than my dad, which is not the way it usually went.
