The Circle of Love

December 23, 2021

Circle of Love

The bride was beautiful. The groom handsome and proud. In the company of dozens of friends, family members and staff, Tom Nestor and Cheryl Young were wed on July 18 at Good Shepherd Home – Raker Center. After months when resident activities and gatherings were suspended because of COVID-19, the event was cause for celebration in more ways than one.

The ceremony brought full circle a love affair that began nearly four decades ago. Tom and Cheryl first met at a sheltered workshop for people with disabilities, but life took them on separate paths. In 2019, as fate would have it, Cheryl moved to Good Shepherd where she and Tom rekindled their romance.

Co-officiants were the Rev. Corrine Dautrich from Good Shepherd, and the Rev. Dr. Jeremiah Sassaman of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church of Mertztown. Congratulations to Tom and Cheryl. May you have many years of wedded bliss together.
