Our Wedding ~ January 1st, 2000




THE BRIDE
Camby is from Coos Bay, OR , (you know, where the New Carrisa was)
who moved to Portland 2 years ago. She has traveled to many parts of the world
and all around the US with her family doing promoting and sponsoring of
national motorcycle road-racing and dirt track events. She has two grown
wonderful sons, Curt and Chad. Her parents formally owned and operated the
Coos Bay International Speedway.

THE GROOM
Rob was raised in the Portland area. He works at KCBY TV-11
He also was a Disc Jockey in St. Helens, among other things. He has been an avid collector
of all things Trekkie and Techie, Toys and Comics...(and, by the way, he is a great dancer...Camby
needs someone who can constantly entertain her.) He has been looking for someone to bring Magic
back into his life and has found it in Camby. One of their first weekend outtings was to Disneyland
and it has been "Happily ever after" ever since...and, of course, May the Force be with you.

HOW WE MET
"There was a Boy.....There was a Girl.....And he lived on the other side of the mountain",
you know, that old Donnie and Marie Osmond song, well, anyway....Camby had to leave Coos Bay....
moved to Portland, had to find a job to stay there, yet through that the connection was made.
We were introduced by Rob's Sister-in-law Laura who works with Camby.
It was magic from the first day. Rob and Camby that is, not to say there isn't magic
between Laura and Camby, but our connections get kinda frizzed out with her on the Midnight shift
and at that time Camby was on on 4 AM shift.....But actually we have Carol to thank, because if Laura
didn't go out and stand with Carol in the smoking area at 4:00 am when I came in each morning,
she just might not have ever even talked much with me...It is amazing how God
works through people and in a workplace in order for Camby to
find her man....Mr. Rob Collier...."What a man what a man, what a mighty,
mighty good man"....."She likes me for me"......End

WHEN WE GOT ENGAGED
August 07 1999

HOW IT HAPPENED
We had been looking for rings for over a month. I didn't want to formally ask
Camby without one. One day while looking a Harry Ritchies in Coos Bay, I bought a engagement ring
while Camby had stepped away. While having dinner with her parents that night at a
nice restaurant in town, Camby asked me, "So, how is your lobster Mr. Collier" and I said, "Great!"
Then I said, "Actually, I should say great, Mrs. Collier" Camby had a stunned look on her face
as I popped out the ring I just bought and said, "Camby, will you marry me?" Still stunned
by the Mrs. Collier line, she said Yes.
