The Veil

Paul and Flora Zurfluh

Martin and Katherine Magelky

I was going through some of my old family photos last week and came across the wedding photos of my Grandma Flora and her mother, Katherine. I had never noticed before, but they are both wearing the same veil. Neither had a traditional wedding dress. Katherine's was a rather severe black dress. Flora's was a flapper number with crocheted pockets. But they both had the veil that reached to the floor.
I wonder where that veil is now. There were many children, grandchildren and great grandchildren that it could have gone to. Those that live in the Midwest are strangers to me. I guess I will have to make do with the photos and wear the floor length veil in my dreams.
