Meet the family for December 16th


Nancy Darlene Myer
is 53 years old today, born in 1956. It is rare in an individual's time continuum that an event so special as to change life as you know it occurs, but that is what happened to me when I met Darlene.  Just to show you, when all seems darkest, the next moment everything could change, is exactly what happened to me.  Never give up on the amazing experience that life is.  I was ending a very bad relationship and was at lunch with a good friend discussing my options when a beautiful woman at a table near us caught my eye.  I pointed her out to my friend and he said that he knew her and asked if I would like to meet her.  I said absolutely.  That was the beginning of my relationship with Darlene Myer 27 years ago.  If it is possible to have a best friend, a business partner, a soul mate and a wonderful spouse all rolled up in one person, then that is was I have with Darlene.  I bless the day we met and look forward to growing old together everyday.  If you know us you know how you are related to Darlene and what she means in your life.  If you don't, I am profoundly sorry for you.  Happy Birthday Dar!!!!!!!
