It was so hot, that Saturday afternoon. Friends and family had gathered at St. John's Baptist Church in Ewing Township, a suburb of Trenton, New Jersey. They were there to witness our marriage. Jim and I were smiling from head to toe. He was in his Air Force uniform and I was in a lovely long white dress. It had been a nerve wracking time because we were not sure if Jim would get orders that would delay our wedding. But it all worked out. That has really been the theme of our married life: It all worked out.
Now 41 years later, we can lovingly say, it is still working out.
