  1. We well remember the young Jennifer and Bryant taking their wedding vows at St. Joseph Church way back in 1992. What a journey you two have had together raising your four beautiful children. We hold you in our thoughts and prayers during this sad time. Peace and God’s love and mercy to all of you. Mary and Mark Cook, Kalamazoo MI.
