This photo was taken in 1947–an engagement picture of my parents, Joe and Mary Vayo.
My Dad was in the Navy for four years. When he returned home to Fairport Harbor, Ohio, he met this sweet girl at the local soda fountain.
Married June 19, 1948, they were together for 55 years.My Dad would sing to my Mom and they would go dancing at Euclid Beach Park.
Yesterday, June 28, 2011, my Mom passed away. Rejoice with me as my parents are once again dancing together. And my Dad is singing in her ear, “I love you a bushel and a peck, a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck, a hug around the neck, I do , love you.” I miss you Mom and Dad.
