A LOVE STORY: As my dad was growing up his mother (Irene Stallcup Johnson) often joked that no woman on earth was good enough for her son - hence my mother and dad's wedding ceremony, conducted several thousand feet above the earth, in a chartered plane flying over Bay City, Michigan. The above picture was taken just outside the plane after the wedding. The newspaper wedding announcement was titled "J. B. Johnson Marries an Angel".
