Twenty-eight years ago Dana and I bought rings, got a marriage license, bought her a dress, and eloped. We then called our parents from San Antonio to share the news.
Other phone calls followed over the years including notifying family of the birth of four sons.
Now we receive the calls: three of our four calling to tell us of marriages (two eloped), calls about grandchildren (three so far...) and calls of grief and celebrations.
What a great life partner God blessed me with in Dana Leigh Searles.
