Our Story

John and I met on December 26, 1976. It was not a smooth beginning as he misunderstood a conversation between his Aunt Ann and me about my parents' divorce. The next day he told her that he didn't want to get involved with a divorced woman. "John, Pauline's a widow. Her parents are divorced." We made plans for a Friday night which turned out to be three Friday nights due to three consecutive snowstorms. On our first date I locked us out of my house and he had to struggle with the frozen bulkhead to get us in. Our second date was a Clint Eastwood movie about a monkey. I don't like monkeys. I invited him for Sunday dinner - roast leg of lamb, oven roasted garlic potatoes, fresh broccoli and homemade pecan pie. He didn't like anything. It was too cold for my four young children to play outside and they drove him crazy, he had a headache and left. He courted the children with Kentucky Fried Chicken. We married on November 11, 1977. We built our dream log home in 1984. We took the children to Disney World, cruised the Carribbean, Alaska, Panama Canal, France and Germany. John converted to Catholicism June 27-28, 2020. Our marriage had ups and downs but we remained faithful to our vows. We promised each other that we would have hospice care when the time came. This experience gave us eight months that most couples do not have. We made the most of that time in prayer, conversations, lots of ice cream, laughs, reruns of old classic TV shows and life story albums which I'll complete. It was an honor and special blessing to care for this exceptional man, husband, father and grandfather. Divine Providence brought us together in life and we believe for eternity. I love you John, Pauline
