Devon Lawrence of Goshen, Ind., and Kay Moore Branch of Crawford were wed Dec. 3, 2011, in Goshen. The groom's pastor officiated at Prairieview Missionary Church where 150 guests shared their joy.
The groom's parents were Howard and Mary Lawrence of Elkhart (deceased) and the bride's parents were Clarence and Ruby Moore of Elkhart (deceased).
Groomsmen were the groom's brother, Lamar Lawrence of Elkhart, Ind., and his friend Kevin Koontz of Goshen, Ind. Matrons of honor were Barbara Hiner of Elkhart, Ind., and Cathy Cheatham of Crawford.
The couple grew up together in the same church and graduated from the same high school in Indiana in 1963. They both attended Bethel College in Mishawaka, Ind., then married others and didn't see each other for 48 years. After both their spouses died in 2010, they met again at a high school class luncheon and renewed their friendship over several months, while living 1,400 miles apart. The couple plan a honeymoon in Hawaii in February, then living winter months in Goshen and summer months in Colorado. A second reception is scheduled for May at the bride's church, Crawford Friends in Colorado.blog comments powered by Disqus
