Families Growing:

Hello Rev. Ellyn,

It's been almost two years since you married Sally and I (June 1, 2005). We just wanted to reach out to you and say hello, given that some time has passed. We also wanted to thank you again for being there for us on the most special day of our lives. Well maybe the 2nd most special day...We are now the parents of a beautiful little girl, Siani Marie Wheeler. She's now 13 years. Again, just wanted to say hi, touch base and let you know that we haven't forgot about you. You'll always be in our heart. We'll be sure to stay in touch.

Regards, Derrick Sally Wheeler

Dear Rev. Kravette:

I don't know if you remember me, but you married my husband, Frank and I almost 5 years ago at Carmens in Drums, PA. I was looking at my wedding album recently and wanted to let you know that our wedding was so special because of you. You helped us with our vows and created a truly personal and touching ceremony.

My sister-in-law and her husband, David and Alura Bartoli, were married by you a year later in Waverly.We often talk about how much we loved our weddings and how wonderful you were to all of us. Attached, please find a picture of our one year old son, Aidan. He has changed our lives, for the better. We are a very happy family. I thought you'd like an update on a truly happy family that you helped bring together. Love, Angela M. Simko

Hello All!

Just when I was convinced that I would indeed be pregnant forever, and would someday be walking around with a 4 year old in my belly, a miracle has occured, and Charlie decided to come out and greet the world.

Charles Joseph Walker. "Charlie Joe" arrived August 2nd at 12:24am, 8 pounds 13 oz 20 inches. His sisters and parents are over the moon! Please forward to anyone I've left out...I'm a bit in a fog...

Thanks, Julie


Just wanted to let you know that on Sunday Feb 19th at 5:36pm at the Cornell Hospital in NYC Little Miss Farrell made her debut. She arrived after a long labor that was worth every minute. She was born 8lbs 12oz and 20"s long with a head that seemed to never end. She arrived with no name but upon first look was dubbed Clara Frances Farrell. Sandy Murphy will always refer to her as "Clarity". It does seem to fit.

After a bit of a rough start and a week in the NICU, Clara was given a clean bill of health and is sleeping peacefully in her crib here at home as I type. Thank you to all of you who kept us in your thoughts and prayers through that rough first week. Peter and I are both so grateful to have her home. She has changed everything. And I can't imagine life any other way now. Allow me to introduce Miss Clara Frances Farrell

Thanks to the many couples who have sent their pictures... wonderful memories!
