In the year 2014, June 18thcontinues to be an auspicious and memorable day to remember for everyone. A lot of events take place on that same date throughout the years, for the last twenty-six years.
This year on June 18th, the King of Spain Juan Carlos de Borbón y Borbón will abdicate the Spanish throne in favor of his son Felipe VI who will become the new King of Spain for the 21stcentury on the same day.
Twenty-six (26) years ago, on June 18th, I was married twenty-six to a former U.S. Navy Postal Clerk Nathan Scott Wittler Patriquin who had been recruited for naval military service at the Great Lakes Naval Base in Illinois, and later served aboard the USS Platte in Norfolk, Virginia and was discharged in New York during the U.S. Bicentennial in 1996.
“Who did not attend Nathan S. Wittler and Gardenia C. Hung’s Wedding Ceremony and Reception?”
My Wedding Reception aboard the Star of Chicago was attended by many family relatives, colleagues, friends, and also volleyball players like Donna Sagami and her boyfriend Steve, Bob Roessler and his girlfriend Joan, my brother’s friends. UIC professor Anthony Graham-White was glad to go on the Star of Chicago yacht for the 3-hour Lake Michigan cruise, even though Carla, his wife nor his son Sean attended. My former high school French teacher Mrs. Francis Salvato and her husband Frank Salvato were happy to be at my wedding reception. NEIU colleagues and co-workers like Marie Lizewski and Mirtha Quintana and her mother Josefa also attended my wedding party.

My Mother refused to attend my Wedding Ceremony and Reception on June 18, 1988 aboard the Star of Chicago at Navy Pier by Lake Michigan, Illinois USA.
Ten (10) years after my wedding day, on June 18th, my Father, Mr. Roberto Hung who was hospitalized at Vencor Northlake Hospital, was throttled by the Respiratory Therapist Ben Aguilar, after Dr. Paul Grodzin, Dr. Frank, Dr. Oliveras, and Dr. Raied Abdullah made their early morning walking rounds before 7:00 AM.

Now, in the year 2014, Kathleen Day ought to be 89 years older among her children, grand-children, family relatives and friends. Her sister Florence served in the U.S. Navy. Her son Sam Day invited me to meet his Mother Kathleen nine (9) years ago, and after the octogenarian birthday celebration and his move to Madison, Wisconsin, I have not seen any of the Day Family members ever again since 2005.
