We met when we were 16 and 17 years old and fell in love almost immediately. Not necessarily with everyone’s good wishes, we were married at 19 and 20! With the words “It will never last” ringing in our ears from some, we took on life as a married couple. We quickly became parents to a beautiful baby girl and life together continued.
Navy life was tough, especially for the ones left at home but we got through. A second beautiful daughter arrived, life continued and got even better.
Now, at our 40th year of marriage, things could not be better. We have each other, of course, two gorgeous girls and two amazing grandsons. We still adore each other and we say “I love you” every day. We look forward to many more happy years!
And they said it wouldn’t last…
