“Often marriage is viewed as the union of two persons.
Yet marriages not only unite the Bride and the Groom, they unite families. With the changing structure of what a family is in today’s world we are offered unique and wonderful opportunities to increase the number of loving caring relationships we have in our lives.
During a wedding ceremony rings are exchanged with a promise. Karen and John thought appropriate that their children should also receive a token of their promise to them this day.
They wanted to find a way to let them know now how special and wonderful they all are in their own way, and how blessed they feel to be her parents.
They also wanted them to have a physical reminder for the future that as they grow and become young men and women in their own right, that their parents will always support them. There may come times when there are things going on in their lives that they may feel no other human would ever understand,
but there is nothing that any of you can ever say that will not be met with unconditional love.
So is the bond of trust that your parents establish with one another, and extend to all of you this day.”
