The pale October sun cast a patterned shadow on the carpeted floor as it came through the lace curtains at the window. There she stood in the beautiful purple dress with the matching feather hat.
Goldrings in Shreveport had coordinated the hat, dress, shoes and gloves for an afternoon wedding. The colors suited her fair skin and silvery blond hair that lay in waves against her head. Like a little girl she waited for my approval of the clothes she had selected for her wedding. They were perfect and I told her so. That October of 1944, my friend, Zenobia Camp, was married to Wilmer West. He passed away in 2001.
