I AM
"WIFE"
TO:  DONALD

......................

WE LIVE IN PENNSYLVANIA WITH OUR LITTLE DOG BOO.  SOMETIMES
WE HAVE FOSTER CHILDREN WHO LIVE WITH US.
RIGHT NOW WE HAVE A GRANDSON WHO LIVES WITH US
DONALD AND I MET IN 1979 IN W. MEMPHIS, ARK.
I HAD JUST MOVED THERE AFTER A DIVORCE AND HE HAD MOVED
THERE FOR A JOB.  WE MET AND FELL IN LOVE AND LEFT THERE TO MAKE
OUR WAY IN THE WORLD. WE BOTH HAD BEEN MARRIED BEFORE AND
HAD CHILDREN FROM PREVIOUS MARRIAGES.  ONLY MY YOUNGEST
DAUGHTER ALESHIA WAS STILL AT HOME.
WE MOVED TO WICHITA KS. AND WENT TO WORK IN THE ELECTRONICS
AREA THERE.  DON WENT BACK TO COLLEGE TO EARN DOUBLE E,
AS HIS OTHER TWO DEGREES WOULD NOT BUY A CUP OF COFFEE
WITHOUT ACCOMPANYING COIN.
AFTER HE GOT HIS EE DEGREE HE WENT TO WORK FOR BOEING.  HE
WORKED THERE ABOUT 6 YEARS AND THEN BOEING
TRANSFERRED US TO PA.
HERE ARE SOME PICTURES OF MY HUSBAND DONALD


Lake at Kingston Cove Apts.
in Wichita, Ks.

THIS IS SOMETHING I REALLY ENJOYED DOING AS A WIFE.
FISHING WITH MY HUSBAND.  WHY SOMETIMES I EVEN PUT WORMS
ON THE HOOK AND DROWNED THEM.  MOSTLY THOUGH I LIKED
TO JUST WATCH MY BOBBER FLOAT AND WATCH DON ENJOY IT.
I ENJOYED WATCHING HIM ENJOY HIS FISHING.
I CAN'T GO ANYMORE BECAUSE I DO NOT HAVE THE ENERGY.
BUT, THAT IS ANOTHER STORY.


This is Donald on his way to the church to marry
Dean and Mary,  Two of our friends.  Dean also worked
at Boeing in Wichita, Ks.
 Dean was my friend first, as we both started  out working in Wichita
at  I.F.R. ( INSTRUMENT FLIGHT RESEARCH )

 DON USED TO BE AN ORDAINED MINISTER BEFORE WE MET.
HE STILL IS LISTED AND REGISTERED AND ENTITLED TO PERFORM WEDDINGS.

 WE HAVE BEEN MARRIED SINCE VALENTINES DAY 1980 AND
I AM SO GLAD THAT I AM THE WIFE OF DONALD.
HE IS THE BEST HUSBAND IN THE WHOLE WIDE
UNIVERSE AND BEYOND INTO CYBERSPACE.

MY LOVE FOR DONALD TRANSCENDS TIME AND SPACE.

Love
              I love you,
                              Not only for what you are,
                                 but for what I am
                                when I am with you.
                                         .
                                    I love you,
                                 Not only for what
                             You have made of yourself,
                                   But for what
                               You are making of me.
                                         .
                                     I love you
                                 For the part of me
                                 That you bring out;
                                     I love you
                                For putting your hand
                              Into my heaped-up heart
                                  and passing over
                             All the foolish ,weak things
                                 That you can't help
                                 Dimly seeing there,
                                And for drawing out
                                   Into the light
                             All the beautiful belongings
                             That no one else had looked
                              Quite far enough to find.
                                         .
                                    I love you
                                    because you
                               are helping me to make
                               Of the lumber of my life
                                   Not a tavern
                                   But a temple;
                                  Out of the works
                                  Of my every day
                                  Not a reproach
                                    But a song.
                                         .
                                    I love you
                               Because you have done
                                More than any creed
                                  Could have done
                                 To make me good
                               And more than any fate
                                  could have done
                                 to make me happy.
                                  You have done it
                                  Without a touch,
                                   Without a sign
                                  You have done it
                                  by being yourself
                                Perhaps that is what
                                Being a friend means
                                     After all.

                                > >>>0==================0<<< <
PLEASE DO NOT GET MARRIED UNLESS:

1.  BOTH OF YOU WANT THE SAME THINGS OUT OF LIFE.
        2.  BOTH OF YOU ARE WILLING TO WORK TOGETHER TO
OBTAIN THOSE COMMON GOALS.
             3.  BE WILLING TO GIVE 100% TO YOUR MATE. 50%
ISN'T ENOUGH.
4.  WHILE YOU ARE YOUNG AND HEALTHY, ASK YOURSELF
IF YOUR MATE NEEDED NURSING CARE,
WOULD YOU STICK WITH THEM OR LEAVE?
5.  COULD OR WOULD YOU CARRY THE ENTIRE LOAD OF
RESPONSIBILITIES IF THAT WAS REQUIRED OF YOU?
6.  MAKE SURE YOUR MATE HAS THE MORAL
BELIEF SYSTEM THAT WILL
SUSTAIN THROUGHOUT YOUR LIFETIME.
7.  MAKE SURE THE TWO OF YOU HAVE A LIFETIME
PLAN TO FOLLOW FOR YOUR CONTINUED
HAPPINESS THROUGHOUT THE YEARS.
8.  INVITING GOD INTO YOUR MARRIAGE IS THE
BEST INVESTMENT ANY MARRIAGE CAN
HAVE, TO LAST THE TEST OF TIME.
    9.  LOVE SHOULD NOT BE A MATTER OF WORDS.
"TELL ME YOU LOVE ME AND I WILL FORGET,
SHOW ME YOU LOVE ME AND I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER."
10. ALWAYS LET YOUR MATE KNOW, THEY ARE THE MOST
IMPORTANT PERSON IN THE WORLD.  NO MATTER
HOW HARD LIFE IS ON THEM, THEY CAN ALWAYS FIND
LOVE AND COMFORT AND SUPPORT IN YOUR ARMS
AND IN YOUR HEART.  ALWAYS BE THERE FOR THEM.
PHYSICALLY, EMOTIONALLY AND SPIRITUALLY TO
THE BEST OF YOUR ABILITY.
.
ONE GETS OUT OF A MARRIAGE, IN DIRECT PROPORTION
EXACTLY WHAT ONE PUTS INTO A MARRIAGE.
    .
    Remember if there is indecision on any of these items
Think again before you tie the knot.


 We are very fortunate that we were not born long ago when the
wrong choice in marriage could have been disastrous.

                             To Don & Olivija
                                Marriage Joins Two People
                                in the Circle of Its Love

                                Marriage is a commitment to life -
                                to the best that two people can find
                                and bring out in each other.
                                It offers opportunities for sharing and growth
                                that no other human relationship can equal,
                                a joining that is promised for a lifetime.

                                Within the circle of its love,
                                marriage encompasses all of life's most important relationships.
                                A wife and a husband are each other's best friend,
                                confidant, lover, teacher, listener, and critic.
                                There may come times when one partner is heartbroken or ailing,
                                and the love of the other
                                may resemble the tender caring of a parent for a child.

                                Marriage deepens and enriches every facet of life.
                                Happiness is fuller; memories are fresher; commitment is stronger;
                                even anger is felt more strongly, and passes away more quickly.

                                Marriage understands and forgives the mistakes life is unable to avoid.
                                It encourages and nurtures new life, new experiences,
                                and new ways of expressing love through the seasons of life.

                                When two people pledge to love and care for each other in marriage
                                they create a spirit unique to themselves,
                                which binds them closer than any spoken or written words.
                                Marriage is a promise, a potential,
                                made in the hearts of two people who love,
                                which takes a lifetime to fulfill.

                                                              - Edmund O'Neill

                                         Happy Anniversary
 

                          Happy Valentine's Day, and what a wonderful  day for an
                     Anniversary, so have a wonderful Valentine Anniversary and I
                            wish you many more. Love like your's is eternal.
                                                           - ~Carolyn in MI~
