Default July 28, 1962

Sharon and I got married. She had just graduated from high school and had turned 18 earlier in July. I was 19 and had just completed my freshman year in college. We had gone together in high school and I worked part-time and she had gotten a full-time job. We promised my parents that I would continue college. From that time on, we made our own living, not accepting any help from our parents. I think lots of folks figured we wouldn't make it and there were times we thought so, too.


But we held on. I graduated from Baylor in 1965 and got a real job. She continued to work and our son was born in June 1968. My job involved transfers and we went to Dallas for 6 months and then to Corpus Christi. Our daughter was born there in August 1971. My job had more transfers and from 1967 to 1985, we owned 6 homes in different cities, all in Texas.


We now have our two children and four grand children (1 girl and 3 boys) and 2 great-grandchildren. Today, we have been married 60 years. She is 78 and I will be 80 in October. We are in fairly good health considering our ages.


I think we will both agree that if we had it to do over again, we would.
