Meet the family for March 17, 2012

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY TO EVERYONE!!


WOODEN/MYER-FAMILY LINE

WOODEN/MYER
Jerry Joseph Wooden Jr. and Nancy Darlene Myer's
28th anniversary is today.   Most of you know our story, but I'll repeat it again.  We met while I was representing a graphic design studio and Darlene was one of our clients.  David Cooper, one of the partners of my firm and I were having lunch and Darlene was sitting at a table near by.  David introduced us and we haven't been apart more than a couple of days total since.  We were married in a friend's back yard in a surprise wedding.  We gathered friends and family for a St. Patrick's day party.  During the party I announced from the porch that Darlene and I were engaged.  Some one in the crowd asked when we were to be married.  I replied, "funny you brought that up" and our minister came out in full robe from the house and married us on the spot.  It was a great time and it seems like yesterday. It has been 28 years.
