Peter and Donna

Peter & Donna - Peter Meets the In-Laws Peter & Donna - Peter Meets the In-Laws

I was working at my Dad's business when this handsome man came to work there.  His name was Peter, he was British and to me he looked like Sean Connery in the movie "The Wind and the Lion".  I was smitten at first site.

At work we shared a few conversations but that was all there was.  It wasn't until a few months later June 20th, the summer solstice that fate played a hand at getting us together.

My brother was visiting from college and I was going to pick him up for an evening at the drive-in movies.  Yes, this was in the 70's when we still had those wonderful forms of entertainment.  Anyway, when I arrived at my parent's house Peter was also there as a dinner guest.

My brother and I discussed the available movies and could not agree on which one to see.  I kind of got the feeling he really didn't want to go out with his older sister - that he would rather spend what time he had with his friends.  So to let him off the hook I flat out asked him if he wanted to go to the movies.  No sooner did he reply no, Peter spoke up and said "I'll go with you."

That night we enjoyed a funny move, the stars above us and plenty of smooching - because that is what drive-in movie dates are all about.

After a brief courtship, Peter and I were married in November of that same year.

Peter died of cancer shortly after our 28th wedding anniversary.  We only had two months between diagnosis to death but we made the best of it and he kept his sense of humor until the end.

Our marriage had it's ups and it's downs but when I think back I mostly remember all of the good times.  And I often miss growing old with him and all of the adventures I have had since his passing that he has not gotten to enjoy with me.

He was the love of my life.
