Twenty years ago, we planned a wedding in Staten Island . The day was cold, but our hearts were very warm. How exciting that day was. We were growing as a family. We were a family of four. By the time noon rolled around, we were a family of seven, and my son became a husband and father. What a happy day that was. Before we knew it, we quickly became known as "The Furer Nine." And those wonderful family parties, where two families from different cultures, moved to the beat of the same drum and became one. We had so many family members at our parties, we couldn't count them all. So much fun, and so many wonderful memories for us, and our children. How exciting those times were.
