Maritza & Josh

San Antonio, Texas
Maritza and Josh were married in Helotes, Texas during the time of the NBA Finals. San Antonio went on to defeat the Miami Heat and take the title, so the atmosphere was of you euphoria in Helotes, a suburb of San Antonio.

As you might imagine, June in Texas is rather warm; but the weather was fantastic and Dana Hornbeck, Nawal Taoussi and myself had a great time getting to know San Antonio and Helotes and visiting with Maritza and Josh and their families. I have known Josh since he was a tadpole. I was asked to be the godparent of Josh and his sister Nina by his father Frank and mother Freda when I was stationed at Schofield Barracks on the island of Oahu in the state of Hawaii. It has been my honor to observe Josh grow and mature into the fine young man that he is today and I am very proud of him. Frank and Freda have done an exceptional job raising him and Nina into fine young adults and Barbara and I love them all very much.

Maritza is a beautiful and gifted young woman. Accomplished, well spoken, charming and well mannered. It was a pleasure to see her again after meeting her once previously when she attended Josh's graduation from Infantry AIT at Fort Benning. They are so in love and I have no doubt they will have a long and happy life full of love, laughter and contentment. We all wish them the very best life has to offer and when they have had their fill, just a little more.

I would also like to acknowledge the exceptionally nice folks we met at the wedding. Maritza's father and mother could not have been more gracious to us and we appreciate their warm and welcoming generosity toward our team. The bridal party was as crazy and fun loving as they were devoted to the bride and groom, and it was obvious that strong bonds of family and friendship existed and it was rewarding to see and experience.

Thanks to everyone who participated and prepared and fretted and worked so hard to make this event such a glorious success. The ceremony was beautiful and the reception was amazing and it was a truly enchanted evening no one will soon forget. All the best to all my new and old amigos down in Tejas. Thanks so much for having us come down and showing us how to do it up right.
