"Dorothy and I first met in Hays,Kansas on June 16, 1963, eloped on June 27, 1963 and were married in Denver, Colorado June 28, 1963.  I knew by the 2nd date that this was the girl that I wanted to come home to for the rest of my life.  I lost my father in February 1966 and Dorothy lost hers in April 1970, we had our first of two sons in February 1970 and neither of our sons ever knew a grandfather.  We tried to help our mothers, mine moved across the street from us and lived there until she passed 21 years after my father. We transferred with my employment 2 years before she passed, and her mother spent the last 10 months of her life living with us in south Texas. We tried to help both of them as much as possible and I'm certain that they appreciated it.  Dorothy was a very giving person and people liked that in her, always helping others.  We transferred to Farmington, New Mexico in 2003 and she passed on December 20, 2014 at home in Farmington, we had 51 1/2 years of wedded bliss before the good Lord called her home."
