Memories Timeline


  1. My family lived in Fredericksburg at the time of our wedding but I had not really lived there so knew only a few people, even at the wedding, which was attended by a lot of my father’s church folks who were pretty much strangers to me at the time. We have been married almost 50 years so I don’t remember the evening all that well but I do remember Bill, who graciously and wonderfully played for us so long ago. -Mona Fye Knoll

  3. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Kudos
