Lola and John
I had the pleasure of meeting a truly special couple that I would like to share with you. This is Lola and John Sandoval. Lola and John stopped in with their family because they wanted to share a piece of their history. Stories like theirs hold a very special place in my heart.
Lola and John grew up in Chama NM, fell in love, and were married in Dixon, NM on February 27th, 1944. That was during the time my Great Grandparents- Louis and Hortense Goodman were running the store- two years before my Grandfather, Dave Goodman took over. The Sandovols remembered it like it was yesterday.
Back then, Goodman’s sold wedding dresses and wedding bands. Lola was proud to share, that both were used in their wedding. She said Hortense also sold wedding bouquets that she made out of artificial flowers since you couldn’t get fresh flowers for a wedding during that time.
It was so nice to hear the Sandovol’s memories of Goodman’s years ago and a joy to see such a loving couple who have been happily married for 70 YEARS! John told me not a day has gone by that he didn’t love his Lola. TRUE LOVE IS REAL.
