I Was the Academic Mother of the Bride
a supernetwork reunion aspect to the wedding.
The bride met the groom at the POMS Conference in Dallas, Texas, a few years ago appropriately, on May 5 and the wedding was on May 5, which was also the 38th anniversary of her parents' wedding.
I have had invitations to attend weddings of my doctoral students in India and outside London (I have videos of those weddings since I could not attend them) and have been to the wedding of Dr. Jose M. Cruz, which took place at Smith College.
As for my academic family tree, see the math genealogy list, which has now been traced back to Newton and Galileo.
Remember, next Sunday is Mother's Day!
