GINGER DOWNING MOTHER OF THE GROOM For me the Drew and Allex story began at a sad time in our lives As I remember it Bob had been in the hospital for over five months and Drew took lots of trips to Tucson to spend time with him His Dad was his rock and his best friend The last trip down Drew spent a lot of time on the phone with a girl I didn t ask any questions Well that is kind of a fib The morning that I called the kids to get here quickly as Bob s life was nearing the end Drew and Allex had been out on their first date the night before Drew was the first to arrive and sat in his Dad s room talking to him He told his Dad that he had finally met the girl he was going to marry and he knew he would want to know before he left us He told his Dad that her name was Allex Drew stayed with me for several days after Bob passed He had lots of long conversations into the night with his new girl As he told me about her he DAD also told me that she was the one Never before had he been so sure of anything I was grateful that he had someone to go home to at this sad time in his life I also encouraged him to take his time and enjoy the process Falling in love is such a wonderful time in our lives About a year after they started dating Drew called and asked if he could have my engagement ring

GARY ABRAHAM FATHER OF THE BRIDE It became obvious at a very early age that my precious daughter Allex was the one in our family of five who would be in charge of family love Allex is the one who each of us wanted to be around and or run to for some non judgmental spirit lifting sunshine and hugs We are not a confrontational family but we did have occasional spats and it was mostly Allex who by her very nature would calmly interrupt to remind us of the importance of compassion understanding and forgiveness Truth be told when it came to knowing how to extend your Love I think each in our family did our very best to learn from Allex s example SUNSHINE To steal a couple of lines from a recent movie At the core foundation of every lasting marriage is love and friendship and a willingness and a desire to enrich the day by day experience of your beloved I think Drew and Allex have together discovered the magic of their very special Love Friendship and marriage is simply the final dressing on their vows and their commitment to one another I send them my deepest and most heartfelt good wishes and blessings
