Thank You
A simple ‘thank you’ seems inadequate for the thoughtfulness shown to us at our wedding shower. This is such an exciting time for us, made even more special as we share it with our Lewisville friends and family. For the lovely gifts that will help us start our new life together (the toaster oven already gets used daily!), but more importantly for the love and support you have shown us – THANK YOU. We love you all very much!!!  (A special shout-out to the refreshment team, Deb Coates, Dovie Parlee, Jenn Carey, Laura Small, Eileen Carey, Uncle John and Big Bro Sun for participating in an extra special way!)

Love,
Evan and Jillian
