They had a full wedding service in San Fernando cathedral in San Antonio, which I learned is the oldest cathedral sanctuary in the US, founded in 1731. There is a lot of construction in the plaza in front of the cathedral, so I was not able to get a picture of the outside, but I got some of the inside below. Like the missions of San Antonio, it’s not very fancy or very large, just simple and quaint. I thought the most interesting thing was that the remains of Jim Bowie, William Travis and Davy Crockett are entombed there in a marble coffin.
Later, there was food and mariachis and dancing, just like their first wedding, plus a slideshow of their family pictures. After that, around midnight, they hosted everyone at their house for menudo. Everyone was glad that I made the trip(so was I). My folks and I took my grandma Amy and grandpa Tony, 91 and 95 years old, respectively, and sometimes it felt like we were sitting at the table of honor: everyone kept stopping by to say hi to them and congratulations. They have been married for 72 years! Cyndi and I have a long way to go…
