We were married 63 years and had a wonderful life. We spent many hours on the water fishing, crabbing, or just for pleasure. We also took many wonderful trips together. Went to every state except North Dakota and New Mexico. Also went to several countries in Europe as well as many cruises. Like I said, we had had good life.
