Groomsman: Dave Zia 

Dave and I went to George Fox together.  Years later we ran into each other and realized we both lived in Central Oregon.  Now we see each other almost every week - either playing board games, watching a TV series (loved Battlestar Galactica!!!), doing construction projects, or just sharing a meal.  Dave has been a consistently reliable and steadfast friend over the years.  I know that I can count on him thru thick and thin.  Dave, thank you for your counsel, the way you challenge me and aren't afraid to ask me blunt questions, and for constantly pursuing a deeper friendship with me.  I am privileged to journey thru life with you.
