April 7, 2012 was a big day for the Gilbert family.

Michael Timothy Paul Crouch and Karla Ruth Gilbert were married at 3 p.m. April 7 at Rosehill Community Center in Mukilteo.

Michael is the son of Bruce and Liz Crouch. Karla is the daughter of Bill and Sandy Gilbert.

Karla and Michael have made their home in Freeland.

On that same day, while Karla and Michael were getting married, Karla’s brother Andy Gilbert stood nervously in their ceremony because his wife, Mitsuru, was in labor in San Jose, Calif. Andy had a quick return to San Jose. By 9:30 p.m. April 7, an announcement was made at the wedding reception that Andy and Mitsuru had a son.

Karla and Michael became aunt and uncle to William Hideharu Gilbert. Hideharu and Masako Sone of Tokyo and Bill and Sandy Gilbert formerly of Clinton, now living in Coupeville, had become grandparents. Andy and Mitsuru and “Little Will” have also made their home in Freeland.
