Great news! Jen and Angelique were married Friday at Christus St. Vincent Cancer Center in Santa Fe, where Jen is receiving treatment. A district judge on Thursday ordered Santa Fe County Clerk Geraldine Salazar to begin issuing marriage licenses, and special accommodations were made to deliver one to Roper and Neuman at the cancer center. Congratulations and many blessings to them both!
