  1. Congratulations Jill and Doc! You both look so happy in that photo, and I wish you happiness for many years to come :)

  2. Thanks everyone for the well wishes! We still can’t believe it is all real. Doc’s boss summed it up well: “When I was a child I was not allowed to date Jewish or Catholic girls. Today a Jewish girl and a Catholic girl married each other.”
