Many friends that knew us would come up to us and say, “What an inspiration you are to us in your faithfulness to each other.” That was a humbling expression to me. After Sonja died, I thought that there just might be a story to tell. Not only about how the disease affected her personally but how we handled the effects the disease had on our marriage. We had some humorous and some times very difficult situations to contend with. We had to learn how to respect one another.
