I’m so very, very happy for Carrie and Pat. Since both have lost their spouses, seeing them commit their lives to one another in marriage is powerful. I know that all their promises of love and respect for each other are based upon knowledge, experience, courage, and practice. It is an exciting and moving moment to watch them, and their families start anew and it is good and fulfilling to see joy in their lives!
This is a ‘for reals’ goodbye in this next photo that just happened to come about when assembling for a family photo. I think it’s a fun one to show just how friendly and welcoming these people are!
