Video of my youngest son's Wedding Day - Jonathan and Kayla Oye

District 29 family, I wanted to take some time to share with many of you a beautiful video of the wedding since so many of you have asked.  Many have seen the pictures on my facebook page, but for those who are not on that page, I am sharing this with great joy and excitement.  I am truly a blessed and happy mother.  My children have matured and flourished.  The community embraced them as I have served over the years and I and our entire family are forever grateful.  Thank you and Enjoy!
