Lights Up My Life

A Waldorf Story by Richard Blumberg
1950
I’m almost 94. My bride and I got married at the Waldorf on December 24, 1950! Patsy didn’t make it to our 70th anniversary as she passed 6 months prior. I have photos of us getting ready and an hour movie of the procession and party. We were quite a good looking pair. Our $5,000 bill is attached as is Patsy as a bride. Imagine that! It was Christmas Eve and the streets and hotel lit up the night sky. And she still lights up my life. It all began at the Waldorf!
