The Wedding.

Uncle Ronnie, got married in shul. My dad was the beat man. There they all were standing under the huppah and the rabbi is talking and Bubbe is watching from her wheelchair and it's time for my dad to hand Ronnie, the ring. Out it comes and just as my dad gives it to him, Ronnie faints, out cold. Bubbe starts crying and everyone in the shul starts talking an tatting. So the bride's brother got his shoulder in tight on Ronnie on one side and my dad got his shoulder in tight on Ronnie on the other and the shumus propped him up from behind and that was how, Uncle Ronnie, got married. Bubbe said later, it was a terrible shame he missed it.
