|Brian K. Eppers & Katie Gwen Watkins Eppers|

|Cutting the Groom's cake.|
It was obvious to me he would be my nephew early in their relationship. Katie had allowed Brian to protect her, something she had never done with any other guy she had dated. She had always been very independent. When she allowed Brian to take over and drive the two of them from their campus in Texas during a winter storm for Christmas 1998, I knew he was the one.

They moved from Middle Tennessee to Mason City, IA and then back down to Des Moines, IA. In the meantime, Brian changed his specialty from Medic to Medical NCO as a member of a Civil Support Team, Weapons of Mass Destruction with the Dept. of Homeland Security. Katie has worked to gain her degree and has become the Leasing Agent for Highpointe Properties in Norwalk.

They now have two beautiful children, Alix and Jaden, and have a good life together. Brian is continuing his education and working toward a degree in psychology. They have weathered a health scare with their daughter and have grown even closer as a family and as a couple. They serve together on the Praise & Worship team for their church, Crossroads Church, in Norwalk.
I pray they will have many, many wonderful years ahead of them. I love them with my whole heart and know they love me. What better can a person wish for than to know they are loved by those whom they love?!
