Getting married – and then divorced – again….

FamilyGroup with NamesOn Friday, August 29th, 2015, on what would have been our 45th wedding anniversary, if we hadn’t been divorced for 33 years, Steve and I remarried – again on the Friday of a Labor Day weekend.

The original ceremony was held at Steve’s parents’ house in Salt Lake; we had a honeymoon night and breakfast at The Pancake House on State Street, then loaded a van with our stuff, and drove, with my daughter, Kim, down to Cedar City, UT where Steve attended college.

This time we got married in the house in Las Vegas that I share with our daughter Krys, who treated us to a night at the MGM Signature Resort and we had breakfast at IHOP, then returned to the house in Indian Lane.  Steve spent his honeymoon visit installing a brand new front door for us and working down his “Daddy-do” list of stuff for his daughters.

Steve’s brother-in-law, Kent Winder, brought his wife Suzy, Steve’s sister Karen Strebel Eaton and his mother Kay Butters Strebel down from Salt Lake for the ceremony. Steve’s mom and sisters attended the ceremony in 1969 and we were delighted to have them with us again.

New attendees were our children and two grandchildren – and our youngest son and his wife attended via “FaceTime” from Phoenix!

We’d like to give a shout out to Rev. Roland August, the Mobile Minister, who performed the ceremony in fine style.  He managed to combine solemnity and chuckles and hit all the right notes!

Addendum: By mutual decision, we divorced again in May, 2016, again with the support of our children.
