It was pointed out to me that I had not posted in a while. I have been so slack!
Today is the big day for Elise Brennan and Ronnie Gerald. The day brings happiness and sadness for our family. We are so excited for them and sure the wedding will be beautiful! I can't wait to see Kathy's sister, Donna, and her boys. It's been a long time since we've spent time with them.
The sadness comes because Ronnie and Elise are moving to Jacksonville, NC (he's a Marine stationed at Camp Legune). Evan teared up at night at the rehearsal dinner - which in turn made me cried! My big tough boy's 'big sister' is moving away.
Elise was instrumental in us becoming friends with her parents, Ed and Kathy. How? She was born! We've been friends with them ever since - I wanted to hold the baby! She has entertained us, kept our children in the summer, spent many beach vacations with us and countless holidays together. In other words, she's like my own child!
I wish Ronnie and Elise all the happiness in the world. Both her parents and Bob and I have been married for almost 30 years. May they enjoy a long life together like us and her parents!
CONGRATULATIONS AND GOOD LUCK, ELISE AND RONNIE! We love you all!!
