Tyson Penney would like to announce the marriage of his Mom, Lorraine, to Cletus Janes on August 16th, 2008. Cletus not only has a wonderful wife but an awesome son, also a great mother-in-law, Audrey who sadly passed away a few short weeks after the wedding. Our thoughts are with her. Thanks go out to numerous family and friends, with special thanks to Deanne Byrne (maid of honor), who went well beyond what a true friend should be. Diane Byrne for helping control the moose population (careful of the speedbumps in NFLD Diane), and Carl Stewart for being there at the drop of a hat. We really did marry our best friend on that day.
