It was December 24, 1983.
On record as one of the coldest days in Columbus, Mississippi. (5 degrees at Noon)
At approximately 11:00AM, in a small Church of Christ in Caledonia, MS; the preacher asked the woman standing beside me would she promise to love me, not just be “in love with me” for the rest of her life and stand beside me as my wife.
She said, “I will.”
