Gregg is pretty low-key. So. I’m careful to keep the spotlight off of him. But. Today, Gregg and I are marking 38 years of keeping our covenant of marriage.  Our milestone anniversary–#25–was spent at a soccer game after our nation came to a halt because of terrorism.

The last 13 years mark significant changes in our family as well as our marriage.

One of the significant life-changing events was the birth and death of

Lucy Mae Carter

March 4, 2012

SALEM – Celebration of Life service for Lucy Mae Carter, infant daughter of Tiffany and Drew Carter of Salem, will be held 4:00pm, Saturday, March 10, 2012 at the First Christian Church 685 Marion St. NE, Salem. Survivors also include grandparents, Rev. Kerrie and Gregg Palmer, McMinnville, great grandparents, George and Marilyn Carlisle, Salem, great grandmother, Agnes Gentzkow, McMinnville, grandparents, Jerry and Bonnie Carter, Eugene, and great grandfather Roy Rylander, of Calif., and several aunts and uncles.

We all have been impacted by little Lucy; we will always be blessed by her short life.

Our word, “always” says it all.

(Please note: Gregg’s the tallest–so relegated to the back in pictures)
