June 6, 1970
As I recall, albeit through the haze of an all night bachelor’s outing with several friends, Saturday, June 6, 1970, was a lovely, clear, crisp day. But mostly, it defined the future: a half century of adventure, love, celebration, learning, teaching, and sharing.
With a magnificent view of the Andes mountains lording over Santiago, Chile’s capital city, family and friends gathered at the Santos Angeles Custodios chapel in the Providencia neighborhood just a few blocks from the home of Ana Luisa Gonzalez and Claudio Fernandez, for the marriage of their daughter Luisa Maria Ximena to an American Peace Corps Volunteer, David William Joslyn, son of Stella Simonelli and William Joslyn of Penn Yan, NY.
Fifty years, three wonderful children and six magnificent grand kids later, today Daveschile.com celebrates that very special day, and invites you all to celebrate along with us.
Cheers and Peace.
Ximena & Dave
