My Uncle Proposes at the Old First Ward Parade

One year ago, my uncle met Michele at the end of the parade route. Today, he proposed.

He wore a kilt and asked a couple of bagpipers to play as he got down on one knee. He offered her an emerald set with two diamonds. She said yes.

We met up with them later. I popped the champagne. My Uncle Billy gave a toast. What a celebration.

My uncle is 54 years old and has never been married. Sometimes love comes later for us South Buffaloians. But when it's true.
