Our Wedding in Mazatlan 1994

Add a comment

Over the Christmas holidays in december 1994, Rick and I took Patrick and Jason, our sons, to Mazatlan for a holiday. We also got married there to everyone’s surprise!

On Christmas morning at 11am. Rick and I were married on the beach in Mazatlan by a judge. Patrick and Jason were our witnesses. Hotel guests from all over the world sent us pictures. Patrick and Jason picked my flowers for me, my wedding dress was purchased from a roadside vendor and our rings were bought at a market place. We later purchased wedding bands at home in B.C. There were beautiful fireworks on the beach that night.

It was a wonderful wedding and an exciting holiday.
I will never forget this Christmas!

I love the flowers in my garden! Many photos have been enlarged and framed as art for my house, or used as destop savers on the computers. The Prairie Cactus photo was taken in the morning dew right after the sun started shining.

From 1978 to 1993, I sent many hours modelling. My best income years were from 1990 to 1993 when I did newspaper ads and car commercials. This was really fun but was very hard work.

Patrick, my son, was born on my 27th birthday – July 29th, 1977. He is a wonderful and caring son. Patrick is a computer genius and has a photographic memory. In his early years, we recognized that he was “brillant” and could absorb anything at any time. Throughout his life, he has brough me much happiness. I am in awe of his intelligence and very proud to be his mother and his friend.

News: Patrick and Kathy announced their engagement at our birthday party in Banff on July29th this year. Patrick is now 30; I am now 57.

Patrick and Kathy Are Engaged!

Patrick and my Dad, Stan Bayrack, were pals. Though there were many generations apart, Patrick and Dad communicated on a special level. They both liked to talk about “how things work.” Dad told Patrick things about the War that he never mentioned to anyone, ever.

Life is nothing without friends and family. I was introduced to my husband Rick May by Jan Savage, his cousin. The rest is history. Vi Cave started my bingo career in Richmond. Kim Bennett and her mom and dad, Roy and Joan, are exceptionally interesting people to talk with.
