The following day, Brian returned to ask Alana on a date. According to the couple, it was “love at first sight!” Alana and Brian were married July 29, 1977, in Allyn and Corleen’s home, surrounded by friends and family. Brian had local artist Larry Tannehill make a “one of kind” wedding ring for Alana.

Alana and Brian enjoyed spending free time with family on Dworshak Reservoir fishing on the pontoon boat, with brother Gary, and wife Virginia, Brooke, Bridgett, twin nieces. Alana named the boat, “Large Marge the Party Barge.”

Fondest memories of Alana were spent with her family at the Lochsa Lodge, sitting with Gus on liars bench, hiking, fishing, picking huckleberries and flowers. Alana and Brian both enjoyed spending time with Corleen and Allyn attending antique shows, local estate sales, traveling to Las Vegas for shopping, concerts and Caesars Palace for the famous boxing match with Oscar De La Hoya , meeting ring announcer David Buffer was a highlight.
