Yesterday, my daughter and I went to the wedding of this exceptional young lady. I first met Erin when she was 2 years old. My husband and I who lived in Madison, WI at the time came to visit the family practice residency in Mason City. Al was coming to the end of his time in medical school at the University of Wisconsin, Madison and we were “shopping” for where he would begin the next phase in his training to be a family practitioner. There was a gathering for the spouses of the residents at the home of Robin, who has now been my friend for many years since. Erin was this little girl who always donned a huge smile. I have had the pleasure of watching her grown up. I took her high school senior pictures. And now, I witnessed her get married – what a beautiful bride! Congratulations, Erin & Kyle! It was an honor to witness your special day!
