I met Karen many years ago at church! We spent many Friday nights together helping out with the teenagers at youth group. One of my favorite memories of Karen is when we took our youth group kids to New Orleans to help with the clean up after Katrina. We traveled in the same van, and entertained ourselves (and the kids) by singing (at the top of our lungs) to 80's Billy Joel songs and every Johnny Cash song we knew.
After several years of friendship, I was elated to hear of her engagement to Tony! The two of them together share a common faith that connects them in a uniquely deep way. It is a wonderful thing to see a friend find such a stand up man.
Tony and Karen, thank you so much for having me bear witness to such a lovely celebration. Congratulations to you both!
