Chris & I first met as 9 year olds when we played on the same minor hockey team coached by his dad. Our paths crossed again towards the end of elementary school as we played against each other while representing our school on the softball team. Attending JPII together in Grade 9 we began to hang out more often, starting with intramural hockey and building touch football, OFSAA curling, starve-a-thons, camping at Sandbanks and much, much more over the past 15 years.

Stephanie Brouillette & Abdé Akbache
I met Michelle in High School and we've been friends since then. I did not have a chance to meet Chris but I heard so many good things about him! I am so happy for you Michelle. I can't wait to see you and I hope your family is doing great. Big kiss, Stephanie :)

David and Cathy Ruta
Chris's "Uncle D" has had the pleasure of watching Chris grow into the fine human being he is from the first day he joined the Pacione extended family. "Aunt 'C" first knew Chris as an exceptionally bright 7-year-old, who charmed her out of her "I hate kids" mode. ;) OK: now I'll stop talking in the 3rd person. Chris and Michelle stopped in to our home in Napanee on their way through from Toronto to Ottawa, and I knew as soon as I saw them together that it was going to be permanent: the happiness they exuded was palpable and contagious: I was smiling for a week after! Much love to both of you. Looking very forward to seeing you again a few short weeks.

Carol Dawson & Joe Dlouhy

John and Kathy Deutekom
Congratulations Chris and Michelle! The Cousins, Deutekom and Heiss families have been friend's since we met at a twin parent's meeting in 1982. We've watched Michelle grow into the beautiful, accomplished young woman she is today. We first met Chris when he and Michelle kindly volunteered to give us a curling lesson a couple of years ago and even then, hoped it would lead to a romance. The two are made for each other.

Natalie McNamara and Patrick Brazeau
I met Michelle in Kindergarten and have always known her to be a very competitive person, congrats, you win again, first to get married out of the old school gang. All the best to you both!

Brian Cousins and Rebecca Saari
Michelle and Chris, When I met Brian, about 7 years ago, I found the love of my life. What a bonus to have Michelle and Chris as a future sister and brother. In my heart, you have been family since we met... I can't wait until it's official! Brian adds a general "hooray!"

Marc & Rachel Mikitka
Michelle is a family friend of the Mikitka's, and I first met her at Beacon Bible Camp in August 2005. I remember talking to her outside the lighthouse and thinking how friendly and open she was and how much I enjoyed talking to her. I didn't get to see her again for two years, but any time she was mentioned I would say "oh, that nice girl I talked to at camp". Then in the winter of 2007 my then fiance, now husband, Marc moved to Ottawa for a co-op term. Not knowing anyone in the Ottawa area Chris and Michelle took Marc under their wing and invited him to join a Friday night volleyball league. They had a lot of fun and frustrating times and bonded greatly. Meanwhile, I was hearing all about Chris and Michelle every week back home (I am from BC) and got to feel like I already knew them. Finally last summer I was able to meet Chris at Marc's sister's wedding. Our eyes met over a distance in the crowded church, and I knew right away it was him because he was with Michelle, and he knew it was me because I was with Marc. I could tell right away just from the friendly smile on his face that we would be friends. So we walked up to one another and didn't wait to be introduced, he just said "you must be Rachel", and I said "you must be Chris", and we were friends right away. Just this last February Marc and I were able to take a trip up to Ottawa to visit Chris and Michelle and we solidified our bond. If Chris and Michelle ever invite you over for a weekend take them up on it! They are wonderful hosts. They even bought a memory foam for their guest bed while we were there so we would have a more comfortable sleep! We are so excited to be a part of your special day and are so happy for you two to start your life together. Being married is wonderful! God bless!

Jason Keon and Gillian Craig
We met Michelle and Chris on Petrie Island for our first game of beach volleyball summer of 2007.

Lisa & Ross DeWitt
I have known Chris since we were babies.... Our parents moved onto a quiet Street in Scarbrough around the same time over 25 years ago. We lost touch over the years but got reconnected a few years ago. Ross and I are touched that you would include us in your special day. Lisa

Chris Atkinson & Michelle Cousins
We are looking forward to this day with joyful anticipation! We will definitely be attending :)

Blaine and Terry Morlock
We have known Chis for many years. We remember him as a faithful and diligent altar server. We got to know him a little better during the exchange programme with students from Quebec during elementary school. Blaine remembers his many contributions of time and talent to the Knights of Columbus. I got to know Chris very well through his many years of involvement with our parish youth group and when we travelled together to Nigeria in 2004 and as pilgrims to World Youth Day in Cologne Germany in 2005. He is a dear friend and we wish him and Michelle many years of happiness. Terry Morlock
