      Larry;

      My wife and I renewed our vows as a CW wedding locally.... It was
      tough but we managed....

      Yr. Obt. Svt.
      G E "Gerry" Mayers

      To Be A Virginian, either by birth, marriage, adoption, or even
      on one's mother's side, is an introduction to any state in the
      Union, a passport to any foreign country, and a benediction from
      the Almighty God. --Anonymous

      When we had our CW wedding in the Dahlgren Chapel in October a
      few
      years ago it was delightful; I can't imagine wearing that
      clothing in
      95+ degrees.
