As I write this short piece, two close friends are getting married. They are both named Joe (Amos and Davis) and have been together for 15 years. They are valuable members of the board of their chapter of Prime Timers.
This event brought to mind my own story; John and I got married on Jan. 20th this year. We have been together over 16 years. These last two months have been the happiest time of my life. John and I had less than a dozen folks at the wedding — a civil ceremony. The Joes had about a dozen guests and their wedding was outside in a gazebo on Fortress Monroe.
