A picture of me and my first born, Theresa, taken the morning of November 17, 1963. Theresa Marie Boyd (Teri) was born on Veteran's Day, November 11th. Back then you would stay 5 days in the hospital but not now. My first husband and I had planned to go on a picnic in the Vicksburg National Military Park but of course we had to change plans! She was actually due on the day that President John F. Kennedy was assassinated but came early. I was 22 years old.
