Confirmation was an important ceremony in our Church. Unfortunately, in 1983 I stopped attending the Church, due to my dismay at the behavior of the minister at the time. The result was that I did not have pictures of the ceremony when Margaret was confirmed. However, by 1985, we had a new minister, Pastor Lyerly, who conducted the ceremony for Steven's class. It was quite a big group and Steven had two classmates from University School, Kelley and Kurt, who were part of the group as well. These ceremonies were both important and are worthwhile to be remembered.
The group picture in 1985 was taken right in front of the Church door (Pastor Lyerly is on the left.):

Both my father and Janice's mother came to this event, and we had a family picture taken together:
