On our Marriage…Blewett Family

"My life has been exciting, never boring, and I have been fortunate to have my wife by my side every step of the way.  I sometimes wonder if, when she spoke our marriage vows forty-four years ago, saying, "In good times and in bad", she knew what she was getting herself into."

 

On Joining the Army…

"It's a story often told – maybe not told enough – how the military has the ability to take a kid without much going for him and turn him into a self-confident man with direction.  That's what the army did for me."

On our Engagement…

"We often went out to dinner, walked, laughed, lived and loved.  It was a magical time."

On our Honeymoon in Bermuda…

"We spent a memory-filled week on the island enjoying the beach, the swimming pool, the drinks, the food, the motor scooters, and, of course, each other."
