I share much with you all and today is purely GREAT news.
I am so happy to announce that our son, TJ, became engaged yesterday to Joelle Wilk, who also lives on Long Island.
It was a completely traditional ‘ask’ as they say. TJ came to us over the weekend, we cried with happiness; he then went and talked with Joelle’s dad, asking for his blessings (which he got), and he did the whole down-on-one-knee ‘thing’ on Thanksgiving Day.
Joelle is a great woman. She is strong, sensitive, smart, and she too serves our community as an EMT CC responder (volunteer) and she works in a local hospital as a Oneirologist (that is in the Sleep Apnea field). She is just perfect for TJ and we all wish them years and years of happiness.
A fall wedding is planned and Joelle has already asked Kaitlyn to be in her wedding party and TJ has asked Rob to be his best man.
I wanted to share this great news with all of you. Yesterday was a REAL GOOD day in the Karlya household.
I am a diabetesdad.
