Jake's June Journal entry

Hi everyone. May has been busy getting things ready and on June 6, my birthday (69), Toni and I renewed our vows at the church where we were married - North Burlington Baptist Church. We had the same pastor, Ralph Neil, who we enticed from semiretirement. It was a wonderful event with over 140 people in attendance. We traveled down in our rented  oversized  Van  with one other wheelchair  buddy  and his wife ,  and  2 other caregivers from the hospital ; Another man in a wheelchair came with his wife,  and 2 nurses came ,  one with her husband.  We saw people we hadn't seen in years and renewed old acquaintances. The service was wonderful, but I'll let you be the judge, because now it is on YouTube.

The title is: "Renewal of Vows In a Wheelchair video" and the URL is: .

 I trust you will be blessed by this video .
