Talk about a power couple–you would never guess they had questionable beginnings… “I like her and want to get married to her.” “I don’t want to get married. It is nothing against him, but I am only 18.” They were engaged three hours later and married in 10 days–so began Suresh and Renu’s married life of 40 years (and counting).

It is the bitter tears that make the triumphs all the sweeter. Our ability to struggle and then succeed, gives true value to what we have earned. In that light I share with you a brief view of the many triumphs Steve and I celebrated as we faced our struggles. We are the lucky ones; we have known love and imparted love to our children.
