Florence, May 2022. I used to joke that a good wife stays with you through all the problems you would not have had if you were not married in the first place. I will never tell that joke again. I cannot even imagine how I could have survived the last few days without Barbara totally looking after me. I mean totally. I cannot even imagine what I would have done without her.
Barbara is a woman already working as close to 24/7 as a human being can. This was before I became a full time job. I really thought that armed with a leg brace and crutches I could pretty much lead a normal life. Not so. if there were a Congressional Medal of Honor for wives, Barbara deserves two.
