Jacque has been a part of our lives for the last six years, and Ashley and Ryan have whole heartedly given their approval for our union. They refer to her as their “step-mom” and their “third mom”. We are all so blessed that there is mutual love and respect between the kids and Jacque.
I don’t think I like the term ‘step mom” but I do love these two people and I love their Mom. The kids have grown so much in the last six years and even though they are taller and maturing they are still so much themselves. I love watching them develop and go through their various stages. Sometimes painful, sometimes amusing, but always an honor to witness these two grow and mature!

Ashley and Ryan, 2012.
Ryan after he climbed Mt June with Jacque and Marsha. This was one of the early hiking trips we took. It was Ryan’s idea and so fun to get to explore and discover with him!
Ashley (Megan at the time) on top of Mt Pisgah in Eugene. Very proud of her accomplishment that day!
