    Hey Thanks so much Dianne!!!! We can't for the big day!, cant believe its this Sunday! wow. I'll make sure to post some pictures when we get back from our honeymoon...

    Speaking of our honeymoon, we almost had to find another place to go!! That darn Hurricane (Dean), WAS heading straight for our resort (just south of Cancun, in Puerto Morelos), but luckily for us it went on a more southern route. phew. We were worried! All is well now, so we are good to go

    Thanks again,

            Sunday will indeed be a special day for our family. I remember you proposing right after the Boston Marathon, man that year and a half went fast. Congratulations Kev.

              Kev,
              Many congratulations to you and Melissa. I wish you the best, and have fun in Mexico! May I suggest a place for you to check out if you can? There's a resort called Maroma, and their restaurant has the most fabulous Mayan cuisine you will ever have. If you are up for a nice romantic and exquisite dining experience, on the day you arrive, have the concierge at your hotel make a reservation for dinner at the restaurant at Maroma (it takes a bit of arm-twisting to pull this off, but if you can, you and Melissa will thoroughly enjoy it). My wife and I tried it out several years ago, and it was just fantastic. Also, make sure you try some Xtabentun, a traditional Mayan honey liqueur -makes for a great after-dinner drink. Enjoy the trip!

                          K&amp;M Wedding Day

                          Hi Bill

                          Thank you so much for thinking of us on Sunday. We were sure thinking of all of you since the wedding favors at everyone's plates were "LiveStrong" announcement cards of the donation K&M made in honor of all the guests, to LAF!! I'd love to post some pictures but I'll leave that up to Kevin. It was a wonderful weekend from rehearsal dinner to the wedding itself. Truly an event that fairytales are made of, a beautiful bride, an absolutely handsome groom and everyone who loves them sharing every minute. So many people said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Of course I'm a bit partial but I'd have to agree. Kevin's brother made a beautiful speech, very touching honoring Kevin as a cancer survivor and so much more. I could go on and on but just to let everyone know everything was perfect and they are now honeymooning in Cancun. I heard from him today and needless to say everything is GREAT!! I thank you and Nancy and everyone here for all the continued support and caring that makes up this "family"

                          Kathy
