Fred and Betty in 1982 -- Post 572 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

My cousin Nancy sent me the Seaver/Richmond photo album of her mother, Marion Frances (Seaver) (Braithwaite) Hemphill after Marion died in 2000.  Throughout her life, Marion had carried on an extensive correspondence with all of her siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews.  

The album had many photos of the Seaver and Richmond families that I had never seen.  Here is one of them:

This photograph is of my parents, Frederick Walton Seaver (1911-1983) and Betty Virginia (Carringer) Seaver (1919-2002) in San Diego in 1982 during Marion's last visit to San Diego.  

Marion was Fred's oldest sister, and she doted on him when he was a boy.  Fred, of course, harassed Marion and their sisters when the girls starting dating young men.  I wish I could recall all of the stories I heard over the years.

I think that this is the last photograph I have of my father before he died in May 1983.  I love the way my mother is looking at him.  He had recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer, and Marion came to visit from her home in South Carolina.
