The Prequel

I'm in Houston at my parents' house. They are moving in a few weeks and I've been rummaging through their stuff. I came across this photo:

My dad joined the army after college and was stationed in Panama's Canal Zone. His mother kept worrying that he was not attending church while so far from home, so he had a friend snap this photo one Sunday morning as proof that he was. The girl walking by in the background is my 15-year-old mother. She and my dad had not met yet. Now they've been married for 46 years. Pretty cool, huh?
