Standing barefoot on a rock that was illuminated by a ring of candles, both partners were visibly moved. Olenka, whose parents immigrated from the Ukraine, stopped several times to wipe the tears off her cheeks. Leon's voice leapt as he began to repeat his vow. They caressed each other's hands for reassurance and the forest was silent when they whispered the words "until death do us part" to each other.
Afterwards, everyone reassembled at Buffalo Camp and feasted on steamed rice and spicy vegetarian chili with candy bars and Reese's peanut butter cups for dessert.
