My wife and I have been together for 32 years. Through good times, tough times – in sickness and in health. She has also been my best friend and trusted confidant. When I did not think I could make it, she convinced me I could. When I was apprehensive about changing jobs or going back to school, she gave me the courage to move forward, assuring me we would face it together. Through it all, I have been far from perfect. But she loves me… in spite of myself.
