The Big Day!

JUNE 5, 2007
Well folks I've not posted in some time and this may explain why.

This is video my friend, Ken Smith, shot of Sarah and I in our first dance to Simply Red's "Holding Back the Years". Ken surprised me as we were dancing. I wasn't sure he had the camera on or if he was playing. Sure enough he did. Sarah and I both love this little glimpse into our Wedding Day so I thought I'd share it with everyone. Sarah and I have been through thick and thin together and were stronger then ever. It was only eight months after dating that I discovered I had Severe Aplastic Anemia and was heading down a irreversible path. We went through a long year of hardships so early on, but we both recognized our destiny. I would eventually be cured by a bone marrow transplant from an anonymous donor (Hector, who was also there with his wife) and we would finally be able to enjoy a happy and healthy life together. It's hard for me to believe that I've been this lucky in life but I am.
I rather you not see me with my shirt off -- it's not pretty.
We followed up our Wedding with a week on the beautiful Island of St Lucia.
GETTING MARRIED, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.
