I met Anne a beautiful, loving young woman in the summer of 1956. After a short courtship we married on December 22, 1956. During the ensuing years we were blessed with a daughter, a son, a grandson, a grandaughter, and a great grandson. For more than 50 years Anne loved me, encouraged me, laughed with me, cried with me and taught me how to live a Christ-centered life. During the last three weeks of her life, she taught me how to die with dignity, love, and eternal hope. Because of her Christian faith I know she is now living in our heavenly home and because of my Christian faith I know I will join her there one day. This I Believe!
