Maid Of Honor
"Jessers" (that's Dr. Jessers to you - J/K) is my oldest sibling and go-getter. We have always been each other's biggest fans and for that, I am so thankful. Jess is the smartest woman alive practically and she continues to show me what a difference we can make in the world if we truly try. We always joke about how my mom put us together for good reason and it's simple: to remind each other that anything is possible. Thanks for your unconditional love and cheerleading sissy! You are my angel.
Emily Overbay (once Henman),
"Emkins" has a gentle nature and strong insight. She and I met in high school and I immediately moved in with her and the "Henman gals." Em has a way of continually making me feel "at home" even if we're hundreds of miles apart. I can always count on Em for a good talk and total understanding. Even though she'll never make it back from the East Coast, I'll always have her dear to my heart. Thanks for your loyalty and genuine care Emkins!
"Jenny Babes" is my new sister (well as of about 10 years ago) and the mother of my two favorite kiddies in the whole wide world. Jenny is honest and strong and she reminds me what it takes to be a good mother. I can always count on her to help me organize a true Keane Potluck, too. Jenny and I also have something GREAT in common, we love my brother Chris to death. Thanks for your constant support Jenny Babes and all that irreplaceable time with Danny and Maria!
Jen Imbimbo (once Enos),
"Jenner" is my right hand wo-man. Jen and I met in high school and geeked out on sports, getting A's, and ASB all the way through. We have shared so many special times together...and have become thicker than theives over the years. Jen is a rock and I continue to grow and learn from her zest for life and amazing mothering-ness. I would feel less like myself without Jen in my life. Thanks for always seeing me for me, Jenner!
Jessica Cook (soon to be Baker),
"Jess-ina" is a smarty pants who's full of wit, and also wonderfully generous and good-hearted. Jess and I met in high school and have continued passing notes ever since. Ha! She is my comic relief and celebrity connection. Thank you for continuing to keep me on my toes Jess, oh and also for forgiving me for that 1 year returned-call time. Thank you for all the laughter Jess!
Kate Berringer (once Collins),
"Kate the Skate" is my old soul twin and Hippie Girl. Kate and I met the summer before high school and we've been having fun together ever since. I can always count on Kate for a long talk, a good cry, and a sing-a-long, of course. We still like face paint and dress-up...oh and Bump Its! Thank you for always being a rainbow Kate!
"Lou Bop" is my oldest and deepest rooted friend. We met in pre-school and have been attached from the start. She and I have been through the best of times and the worst of times...and she has held my hand all the way. From roomies to Irish/Italian sisters, Lynnie has a heart of gold and a contagious spirit. She will always keep me laughing (and clapping while I do it). Lynn also knew my mom, Sandy. There's a funny story about a butt and bee sting...she'll tell you sometime. Thank you for always lifting me up Lynnie!
Toni Kerr (soon to be Tighe),
"Toonses" is my beyond nurturing friend, that actually is now closer to an adopted older sister. She and I met at Diablo and have been pals and sales cohorts since. Toni has been so good to Curtis and I over the last 6 years. In fact, the four of us are almost roommates (again). Thank you for your open heart. We are lucky to have you Toonses!
