    What a wonderful surprise to hear my name and Benny’s on your podcast tonight. I’m a true Pacific Northwest gal and Ben is from Louisiana and why we clicked I don’t know. I met him at the grocery store I worked at and I’d like to say our relationship was smooth sailing from then on but that’s not what happened. He left for Mississippi about 4 months into our friendship to fulfill a promise to his sister to help her get her chicken farm up and running. I visited when I could and fell in love with his family. He made his way back to Washington 2 years later and bought a place about 30 minutes from my home. Now it was his turn to wait for me. Dad was passing from brain cancer and I had made a promise to him to take care of Mom. Mom went to be with Dad about a decade later and my daughter was now grown enough to start out on her own. Finally Ben and I were married and we had almost 5 good years before Alzheimer’s started taking pieces of him away. When he had his stroke I was hoping to care for him at home but after working with his therapists I finally had to admit that it was more than I could do alone. Now he lives in a wonderful family home in my home town and I live in the home we shared. Not sure where I was planning on going with this but maybe I just needed to thank you for sharing our story and the other stories tonight. We will be alright when this is over and hugging just a little bit longer.
