Congratulations to Allie and Elgin

The world lost a beautiful soul with the death of Texie Prather. She was a beloved teacher years and years ago. I will always remember her kindness. The aura she put off was amazing. Her smile and laugh could turn any bad day into a good one! I always wondered when traveling Byhalia Road how she was doing and was very saddened to hear the news, as I am sure all of her former students were.

Birds were chirping and skies were blue for the wedding of Allie and Elgin Lafever Saturday. The couple exchanged vows in a ceremony performed by Clay Pritchett. A gorgeous handmade cross with a swag of greenery stood behind them.

Soloists performed the hymn “How Great Thou Art” acapella while the bridesmaids walked down the aisle. It was breathtaking.

Montrose was covered in beautiful arrangements of white hydrangea and soft pink roses. The groom’s grandmother, Carole Jean Taylor, looked like a million bucks in an outfit covered in hand-sewn pearls. His mother, Suzanne Lafever, wore a deep blue, sequined, floor-length dress and was stellar-looking. The live band played on into the night as wedding guests enjoyed dancing with the couple. Congratulations and here’s to a lifetime of happy days!

Rowan Thompson of Dallas, Texas, has been the week-long guest of his sister, Kay Wheeler, and niece, Laura. While here, he attended the Double Decker festival in Oxford, where he met up with old college friends.
