in a simple, beautiful lawn ceremony. Friends decorated the black walnut tree with flowers. For music we used the piano in the den.
It was the room downstairs on the southwest corner. The pianist played loudly. People dressed up as much as the heat would allow,
certainly more than I saw during the entire rest of our time there."
The Rundberg family lived in Mentryville from 1948-52.
