BC: Those are tears of joy, right Eralyn?
FC: All About Us and Eralyn
1: A friend's good fortune is a blessing...
2: ERALYN! | You're getting married!
3: IN HAWAII!
4: What are my earliest memories of my baby brother's girlfriend?
6: One night my high school boyfriend drove me home, we rolled up with the headlights off so they wouldn't shine into any of the houses in the neighborhood. We sat in the car to talk about our plans for next weekend. As I was getting out of the car, he switched on his headlights... "Is that Gary and Eralyn?"
8: Yes, it is!
10: You really like my nerdy brother?
11: Beauty & The Geek
12: Since I had seen both of my brothers, each with only one girlfriend for their entire lives, how did I know that they were | really in love?
13: I knew Arnel loved Amanda when he went swimming with her. I think the last time he swam before that was when he was 10 years old. But with Gary...
14: Was he less awkward? | Was he less serious? | Was he happier? | It wasn't a discrete moment when I realized Gary loved you. I just noticed over time that he was different...
15: I'm not sure. He was just different. It was as if he was quickly becoming the person God meant for him to be.
16: One day, we were all mad at Gary for doing something wrong. I don't remember what it was, but everyone was criticizing him. When there was a pause in the middle of all the negative energy, a little voice said, "It's okay, Gary!"
17: It was you! | Arnel and I laughed, but that is when I knew you would be by my baby brother's side forever.
18: WELCOME TO THE FAMILY...
19: ...even though you've already been here for awhile! | I'm so happy you're going to be my sister-in-law! Love, Cyndy
20: Eralyn, we were both welcomed into this family around the same time, & you've been there for every memory. | You are a big part of our lives and I am so glad my children are lucky enough to have such an awesome auntie.
22: Without humor, life sucks... without courage, life is hard... without love, life is hopeless... Without a friend like you, life is ugly BGE Congrats Eralyn!!! Enjoy the next chapter of your life as Mrs. Binoya
24: Wishing you a lifetime filled with lots of bangin' bliss!
27: Love you friend! Love Always, Krystal CFO
28: ! | Eralyn, I'm so excited for your special day!!! You deserve only the best. Here's to a wedding and marriage that will be as beautiful as YOU . Love, Subs | the beautiful bride to be
29: We were given: Two hands to hold. Two legs to walk. Two eyes to see. Two ears to listen. But why only one heart? Because the other was given to someone else. For us to find. HUGS AND KISSES AND LIFELONG HAPPINESS TO YOU AND GARY!!!
30: High school dances, debuts, weddings...life. It's obvious that Gary's got all the right moves to sweep you off your feet. =) Keep the music playing, ya lovebirds! *
32: one word:
34: two words...
35: WE KNOW!!!!
36: ThRoWbAcKs.... PrOoF tHaT wE'vE sTiLL gOt iT. hahahaha
37: friends are the bacon bits in the salad bowl of life.
39: which way to the bouquet toss?!?!
40: Eralyn- the one thing I will always remember about our friendship is that day you showed up at my doorstep after those few months of awkwardness. That was the best hug of my life! =) And if it weren't for you, I never would have learned how to appreciate having such amazing friends.
41: Honest, level-headed, patient, responsible, and just the right amount of OCD. haha You have everything it takes to be a kickass wife, mother, auntie, in-law, and forever long friend. Cheers to your happily ever after!!! LOVE YOU!!!! Oh, and if you and Gary ever decide to have doggie children, you know I'm always down to baby-sit. =) love, subs | p.s. neptune sends is congrats and sloppy kisses!!!!
42: "You've been friends since the 7th grade." Gary mentions this every few years for some reason and I'm glad he does. It makes me look back through our 15 years of friendship and reminds me of how far we've come since our St. Linus days. | Through the years as one of my bestest friends and even roomie, you have always been the most amazing person, patient and thoughtful, so giving and super fun. You even managed to teach me a few things, like to always look back to make sure I didn't forget anything! I am just so happy and thankful that we've remained so close and now that you're about to get married, I'm overjoyed. I wish you and Gary the happiest life together with lots of laughter, adventure, and babies. Yea, I said it.

46: Guess Who???
47: It's your sister from another mister... | CEO & Treasurer
48: Nothing is sexier....
49: ...than a man with confidence
50: You guys might not know this, but I consider myself a bit of a loner. I tend to think of myself as a one-man wolf pack. But when my sister brought Eralyn home, I knew she was one of my own. And my wolf pack... it grew by one. So there... there were two of us in the wolf pack... I was alone first in the pack, and then Eralyn joined in later. And two years ago, when Eralyn introduced me to you guys, I thought, "Wait a second, could it be?" And now I know for sure, I just added more guys to my wolf pack. Us wolves, running around the desert together, in Las Vegas, looking for strippers and cocaine. So tonight, I make a toast!
51: I live for the nights that i cant remember, with the people that i wont forget... BGE
52: i just knew that she was fine like a ticket on the dash
53: To my dear friend Eralyn, I wish you and gary a lifetime of happiness, sucess, and multiple children..

55: "A friend is one of the nicest things you can have, and one of the best things you can be." | Congratulations on your wedding day, friend! Love, Tin.
56: Eralyn, I am so blessed to have been friends with you for all of these years. I can still remember junior year of high school letting you nap while I got you an A in Spanish class. Oh the memories, Haha. Thank you for being a wonderful friend. You deserve all the best life has to offer because you are a beautiful person inside and out.

79: I had to put this yearbook entry from senior year in here. It made me laugh out loud. Seriously. When I read it, I can actually hear your voice exactly the way you wrote it.
81: To my bangin' friend Eralyn Gellor (soon to be Binoya)... I'll try not to make this sound like a yearbook message, but chances are, that's probably how it's gonna turn out. But that's just how I roll, so it's cool right? I just wanted to let you know how much I've appreciated your friendship over the last 13 (yikes, are we seriously that old?) years. I remember when you helped me get my first job with you at Rubio's Baja Grill. I will never forget when I got into that stupid fight with those girls at [Panda express, and you had this look on your face like you didn't know what to do. Priceless. I will also never forget when you convinced me to crash our first half- marathon, and you kept pushing mea to keep going. I owe the reason I was able to finish to you. Thank you for all the times you leant me your ear to listen to my crazy stories, and to give me perspective in life. You know I will always do the same for you. Love you, friend. - Stephanie "Lardita" Velarde P.S. This will be one of the few times you will see me get mushy, aside from that time I was bawling like a little girl at Janice's wedding, so enjoy it while it lasts. J/K. haha
83: Wishing you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter Love, Lards/Lardo/Lardita/whatever variation of my name the both of you have made up.
