Saturday September 3, Laurie and Larry made it official and got married in Park Rapids. The brief ceremony at Heartland Park was followed by lunch at the West 40. The afternoon was spent relaxing after some picture taking. With dinner out and a trip back to the "CC" camp for a bonfire, the day was most enjoyable.
Paul and Kim made the trek to the north woods to be present for the ceremony, with Paul and a friend of Lauries (Deb) acting as witness to the event. Red Light Rescue was represented with a card and a cash gift for the couple. The cash gift was used to defray the cost of the marriage license.
Laurie and Larry express their gratitude for the card and gift. Larry is scheduled to deploy on 9/20. The ultimate destination is Iraq with 6 months of training prior to deployment. For now the couple will stay in the north woods until late October, with Laurie heading south to Texas to assist her grandparents for the winter months.
Please keep Larry and Laurie in your prayers. I'll post updates as I get them.
