|Hank & Kaye on cruise for their 50th anniversary.|
The deed done, Hank and Kaye returned to Detroit and resumed their former living arrangements, Hank living with his father and Kaye with her sister, and did not clue anyone in to their newlywed status. Both were unemployed.
Life progressed in this fashion for three weeks until someone discovered that they had eloped.
My mother always told me that a fortune teller told her that she would be married twice. And so she was. On February 23, 1947 Kaye and Hank were again married, this time at St. Boniface Catholic church in Detroit.
So while I have no newspaper articles of my parents wedding, I have this great family story. Incidentally, yesterday would have been my parent's 64th wedding anniversary.
