Our Story

DeatrickDave and I met my first weekend at Georgetown College. We did not start dating until 2 years later.  As I recall we both went to our first astronomy class of the semester.  As I was packing up my books Dave approached me and struck up a conversation.  We walked across campus together talking about our classes and his last semester.  His Phi Tau friends talked to my KD friends. Those conversations led to a phone call and an invitation to the movies and Joe Bs. I always tell him he woke me up from a nap and that is why I said yes.  After 34 years we are still together.  He is one of the best people I know.  So glad he woke me up from that nap. Thankful that our Georgetown experience brought us together.
