Deb is my wife, my partner, my best friend, the mother of our children, and my Valentine. Nearly 36 years ago we took the plunge and got married and went to Minnesota for our honeymoon. We both like the outdoors and we had a wonderful time fishing in one of the most beautiful lakes I’ve ever seen. At the time, Deb was still in nursing school and I was struggling to make a living as a photographer. We didn’t have money, but we had love – and that was enough.
I knew I loved her, but I didn’t yet appreciate what a great life partner she would be. She supported me when I took the plunge to go back to college and begin a completely new career. She gave birth to our two wonderful children and proved that she’s as good a mother as she is a wife. She follow along when my job took us to Mississippi, and then to South Texas and Mexico. Later, she supported me in our decision to begin retirement so that we could explore the country, starting in Arizona and followed by Boston, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
So, today I want to say how thankful I am to have found the perfect partner. I feel extremely fortunate to have Deb in my life. She’s my Valentine today and every day..
