It's time for news.......
|Mike and Stacy. There is no turning back now.|
Stacy Carrell is not a Carrell any more. Stacy's last name changed to Harken on Friday when she wed Mike Harken, the brother of her long time Space Center friend and co-worker Rachel Harken. Talk around the Space Center's water cooler led the casual eavesdropper to wonder if that wasn't Stacy's plan all along, to befriend Rachel so she could eventually meet her brother. However, the facts don't add up. Stacy and Rachel were friends and coworkers several years before Stacy and Mike really noticed each other.

I walked into the gothic Northhampton House in American Fork and found the three of them together. It was Rachel's parents who finally told me who he was as I worked my way down the reception line.
"Stacy, why didn't you tell us you were marrying Rachel's brother?" I asked.
Stacy stood next to Mike, squeezed his arm and replied, "You didn't know? I thought everyone knew. His last name is Harken. That should have been your clue."
I glanced over at Rachel sitting against the wall with a random baby in her arms. She smiled and waved. I asked her the same question. She gave the same reply.
It was then I realized one possible reason why Stacy had kept us in the dark. Stacy didn't want her former Space Center friends and coworkers to tell Mike about the real Stacy we all knew from working with her all those years. I knew that had to be it.
Regardless of the ifs, whens, whys and buts, the deed is done; the Space Center can chalk up another marriage attributed to the simple fact that it was the vehicle that brought Stacy and Rachel together, and because of that friendship, Stacy and Mike's lifelines crossed. The rest is history.
Congratulations to Stacy and Mike. May they live long and prosper.
