We enjoyed each and every part of that day. It was truly a celebration.
As I looked at the wedding pictures I realized that the photo with the son and parents alone would never feel right without Bea now. What a difference a few minutes can make.
Together you face whatever life brings you . . .. Together with God you are a cord of three that is stronger than you were alone. You balance one another with strength and grace. I always wondered when our boys were little who would love them and who would they love. We are so blessed in our family to have such wonderful daughters by love.
As you stood together at the altar, you weren't alone. Both of you had family who loved you and supported this union.

I have felt the wind blow
Whispering Your name
I have seen Your tears fall
When I watch the rain
And how could I say there is no God
When all around creation calls
A singing bird, a mighty tree
The vast expanse of open sea
Gazing at a bird in flight
Soaring through the air
Lying down beneath the stars
I feel Your presence there
I love to stand at ocean's shore
And feel the thundering breakers roar
To walk through golden fields of grain
'neath endless blue horizon's frame
Listening to a river run
Watering the earth
Fragrance of a rose in bloom
A newborn's cry at birth
I believe . . .I believe . . .I believe
(the song that Bea walked down the aisle to)
The wedding party. What would a wedding be without a party?
You have been blessed with wonderful friends. Friends that encourage you and hope the best for you.
This coming year will be filled with new experiences and adventures. I can say this with assurance since in our 29 years of marriage we are still learning and enjoying new things.
We pray that God will continue to give you joy in your marriage. May you be blessed.
