Las Cruces Wedding Reception for Mr. and Mrs. Harold J. (Pete) Steen

Sunday, January 17, 2016

Mildred Evaskovich and Pete Steen celebrated their newlywed status with a wedding reception in the Social Center of the Good Samaritan Society - Las Cruces Village  on Sunday, January 17, 2016 after their quiet wedding held on December 15, 2015.

When Doug and I arrived from Alamogordo, the room was filled with well wishers. The decorations were in their favorite colors and the chefs kept the buffet table well supplied with delicious hors d'oeurves of various and sundry makings. It is a good thing this was a "come and go" reception because they both have lived long enough to have many friends and acquaintances and as one group would leave another would be arriving.

Mildred and Pete make a lovely couple with her 5'4-1/2" frame next to his 6'5" height next to her. They were both absolutely glowing with happiness and were having fun greeting everyone as they came in.

The party was going strong when we left and we met a lot of new people and visited with some friends we don't often see from Alamogordo. It is just so heart-warming to see two people like Mildred and Pete in their 80's take this new lease on life together. Knowing Mildred like I do, it won't be boring.

Congratulations to the happy couple and wishing you many more years to come.

Thanks to Douglas A. Kerr, Photographer for the great photos.

This is all I have to say for now.
