Trooper got married on Father’s Day at the Santa Ana Zoo in Santa Ana, California. He married the perfect person. It was a perfect day for the perfect couple. I’m so happy and proud for Troop and Deb and honored to be a new mother-in-law I couldn’t pick a more perfect mate for either. When God puts a couple together he doesn’t make mistakes and this is definitely a marriage made in heaven. Deb looked like a princess! The whole wedding was just amazing.
I cannot begin to thank of the people that helped make such a perfect day. I know there are so many of Troopers friends that put so much time and energy to help. On my end I need to say thank you to Bill Batstone for playing and singing and for being willing to step in at the last minute and making the ceremony special. Greg and Marilyn Calvillo you guys set the tone for the reception with your music everybody loved and said it couldn’t of been more perfect throughout the afternoon and evening so tasteful. Your the best! Thanks! Jeanni & Craig Whitaker, I don’t have words to express the gratitude and love I have for you guys, you helped make this wedding perfect! The flowers were beyond beautiful, orchestrating the whole day was a massive undertaking but you made it happen without a hitch. Troop and Debs wedding was a big family celebration enjoyed by every age. I could not talk about how great the day was without mentioning all the work and planning Trooper and Deb put into the months of planning and creating every little detail of the day. The gifts, the decorations, the handmade games, down to the popcorn for the zoo. God has Blessed this beautiful couple and our family with the best friends! Phil’s comment to Trooper would of been, “Hey buddy, you scored!!” I know Phil would be so proud of Trooper and would love Deb. His spirit lives on!!! He was missed but still very much a part of the day.
Before I go I would like to apologize. It came to our attention a few days before the wedding that a great number of friends and family we invited to the wedding never received an invitation. We are so sorry and very sad we didn’t know ahead of them. We are not sure why they did not get delivered but sad they didn’t.
I am so glad I am a part of the family of God. I may live on the other coast busy with work, and life, I miss my friends, the fellowship, a quick cup of tea or coffee. But when I do get the chance to come to CA I once again feel a part of Gods family embraced, accepted and loved. THANKS
