Because she is no longer on CM, Tricia asked me to convey her (and my) warmest thanks to all of our CM friends who have responded to this thread. Your prayers, congratulations, and words of encouragement mean the world to us.
Tricia also asked me to let you know that we will be married this coming July 20th in Chicago (in a Catholic church, of course!). Following the wedding, we will be living primarily in Portland, but we will also be spending time in Chicago, where Tricia maintains a residence.
You remain in our prayers and we hope that you'll let us know if you plan on being in the Portland area. We'd love to get together.
