June 9th, 1967, one day before Dean and Maria’s wedding, Janice prepared a dinner after the rehearsal. There were more than forty people who came for the rehearsal dinner in our very small apartment unit on Illinois Street. Most guests were Maria’s family members, however the Japanese consulate stationed in Chicago was there as friend of the family. Maria’s father was impressed with Janice cooking. I was, however, worried about the front porch of our apartment, as the building was so old that I was not at all sure that porch could stand the weight. Fortunately, everything went smoothly, we did not have headline news the next day!
