Chapter 10: Messages of Hope and New Lived Moments

"I pray that Debbie, and our children and grandchildren will draw on their memories of the wonderful moments of love and affection that we have shared. they will miss me because of the memories, yet without these special times our lives would not be what they have been. I hope they dwell on that thought, and celebrate it." David B. Oliver

On June 21, 2016 Becky married Justin on the island of Santorini, Greece. When she was ten years old and went to Santorini the first time, she told David that she was going to get married there-- and on this day she did. Surrounded by 30 friends and family we celebrated a new start. This our first family photo since David died represents a new start, represented by this family photo, our first since David died. From left to right Michelle, Mike, Megan, Matt, Justin, Becky, Tina, Debbie, Ollie, Jessica and Andrew--missing Brad and family the entire time!

Here comes the bride!
