May 12, 2007 will forever hold a special place in my life. On that date, Jessica Osborn became Jessica O. Ranck! Our first born son, Timothy, married well! Our families had an awesome weekend of festivities and near perfect weather for both a beach rehearsal and beach wedding on Fort Story in Virginia Beach. Only a week before, Tim graduated from Old Dominion University. Jessica graduated from the same school in December. The new couple will reside in Newport News, VA.
Gayle and I could not be happier for Tim and Jessi. They are a great couple and have a really great friendship/relationship to build on. The Lord has blessed them with a much greater start than we had when we married thirty four years ago. Gayle and I have really enjoyed getting to know Dave and Lisa Osborn, Jennifer, Becca and Neven as well as the extended Osborn family. We had a great time with them after the couple left for their Outer Banks honeymoon. There were many great stories shared at that party I had never heard before about both Tim & Jessi.
I am probably a little partial but the whole weekend was one of the best wedding events I’ve ever attended and I’ve done many weddings over my eighteen years as a pastor. I got a call from a family friend today who expressed the same feeling. The friend said, it was one of the most enjoyable, stress free weddings he had ever attended. He said the love and support of friends and family could be felt.
May the Lord bless this marriage with His joy and peace for the rest of their lives together! Pray for Tim & Jessi as they take a group of teens to Mexico the end of June on a mission trip as well.
We love you both with all we have!!!!! We love our new family!!!!!!!
