ceremony of our daughter, Rachael, and Daniel, her husband-to-be.
her wedding day.
Father and daughter walking arm and arm
down the aisle of life from birth, to childhood,
a new beginning...
a new walk in their lives together, arm in arm
now facing the future together...
And wherever you lodge, I will lodge;
Your people will be my people,
And your God, my God.
Where you die, I will die,
And there will I be buried.
The Lord do so to me, and more also,
If anything but death parts you and me."
from the Book of Ruth 1:16,17
"May the Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace."
from The Holy Bible, Numbers 6:24-26
|Congratulations, Rachael and Daniel!|
|Ready for pictures at the lake!|
Rachael's dearest friend, Maria, from childhood, high school, college days, and, now, into their married lives, shares from her heart the blessings of their friendship, and its meaning to both of them.
" A friend is someone special
Who can stand inside your shoes,
feel your joy and sadness
not judge you or accuse.
Someone you can sit with
not uttering a word,
but knowing in your silence,
there is something to be heard.
To have a friend such as this
is something very rare
Cherish this special someone with tender loving care."
Your father and I are very blessed, indeed,
to be your parents, Rachael,
and ever, so, very proud of you!
Our love always,
Mom and Dad
"... to have and to hold from this day forward,
for better or for worse,
for richer for poorer,
in sickness and in health,
to love and to cherish,
from this day forward
until death do us part."
from Traditional Wedding Vows
My deepest love to you, Rachael,
