became my wife on March 26, 1970 in Panhandle, Texas. That was 49 years ago. 33 years and two children later, she was promoted to her Eternal Home in Glory at the young age of 52. I will always be thankful for the time we shared together and for the way she loved, lived, and laughed. Only 18 when she married me, but so mature and wise. I thank God for giving her to me!
I am truly a blessed man, because 5 years after Norma's departure, God blessed me with Ruth. We have been together now for ten years. She is nothing like Norma, but everything I need at this time in my life. I could feel guilty being blessed twice by great wives, but the Lord knew how spoiled I was by Norma that I could not do well with less. Ruth is certainly a blessing.
