Anna is a good friend to have. I don’t know anyone who knows her and is not thankful for her. She brings lightness and joy wherever she goes. I didn’t know Don before driving out to Charleston for their wedding, but I knew Anna loved him from hearing her talk about him. Anna had me stay with one of the groomsmen the night before the wedding. I heard Jacob talk about Don, and how Anna and Don had gotten to know each other, and just from talking with him I felt like I had a respect for Don before I met him. Then I met him. What a humble, loving guy. There’s a gentleness to him, and it’s a strong kind of gentleness. A gentleness that very purposefully takes care of those he loves. I think both of these people have a good idea of what’s important in life, and I’m grateful to have been a part of their wedding.
