Happy 40th Anniversary to Us!

This coming Monday marks 40 years since I married the man of my dreams.  A lifetime ago and yet it seems like just yesterday.  There aren’t enough words in any language to describe how grateful, happy and joyous I feel.  We married very young, yes, but somehow, we’ve managed to grow, sometimes apart, but mostly...
