Our two brothers were friends in high school. Mark’s brother told him that his friend had a sister and that he might want to meet her. So Mark showed up at Pat’s house with a made up story about being there to pick up some weights that his brother had left there. Pat loved his great big smile and crew cut and Mark loved how friendly Pat was. They talked for a few minutes and of course never found the weights. Soon after, they talked on the phone and went out on a date. There first date was at the drive-in movie. It was love at first sight! That was almost 48 years ago. Five years later they were married and have been married for nearly 43 years. We continue to grow more in love each new day!
