Yesterday, I saw this beautiful picture on Facebook, posted by Jena McShane, McShane Photography. The bride had called her this past Friday, May 5th, to change things up for the wedding that was planned for the next day, Saturday, May 6th.

Could she make it to Hayes Green Beach Memorial Hospital in Charlotte on Friday night?

The bride, Jessica Brown, was not going to get married without her dad, David Brown, present for the nuptials. David Brown had gone to the hospital on Friday get checked out for what he thought were complications from a recent surgery, thought he'd be in and out and ready for the next day's ceremony. Not so fast, to paraphrase the staff at HGB. You're going to need to be here for awhile.

I wasn't sure at first, but now realize that Dave Brown of Grand Ledge, the hospitalized dad, is the same Dave Brown who played in the Tommy Rockers Band. You would often see Dave and mates playing at the Olympic Broil on Lansing's North Side for the Tuesday Car Cruises.

Beautiful. Sending healing love your way, Dave!
