"I planned to work on the wedding invitations over the Thanksgiving holidays but one event changed everything. It happened late Wednesday afternoon during a heavy thunderstorm. I had just put a pecan pie in the oven when a local radio station announced hazardous weather conditions with ten inches of rain in the past five hours.
Dad called around two-fifteen to say he was on his way. I almost offered a word of caution but then decided he wouldn’t appreciate daughter intrusion. After all, Dad was the Alfa agent. He dealt with weather and accident investigations all the time.
Looking back, I wonder if speaking up might have made a difference. Only God knows."
