The past 3months have truly shown our family values. We stick together, pushing each other when needed, and crying with each other just enough to get through.
With a wedding just 3 short months after the tragic death of my cousins Kyle and Kody, I knew it was going to be hard, but we were all determined to make this wedding a celebration, not a cry fest.
Keith and Lacey, not wanting to fill the empty space that was left by the loss of Kyle and Kody, opted to have the 2 grooms men seat the parents and grandparents, and the 4 bridesmaids simply walk down the aisle and take a seat in the second row. The flower girl and ring barrier were the only ones that stood by the bride and groom.

At the reception, off in a corner, were two candles in the memory of our dear cousins.
Keith and Lacey were married, FINALLY!!
With red eyes, and wet cheeks we started dancing. My uncle David even made his way to the middle of the circle to do little jig. The rest of the night was spent doing what we do best (besides work) partying!!!
I'm thankful to be part of a family that truly knows what it means to be FAMILY. We might be strong headed and kind of clan like in some ways, but that's what gets us through the hard stuff.
Congratulations to Keith and Lacey!!
A wonderful time was had by all, especially this little flower girl.
