With Valentine’s Day upon us, I wanted to share a story about a couple who have had the ultimate influence on me during my 41 years.
The tie-in with Valentine’s Day is a natural one: it was the day the couple was married. Paul and Melba Bridges, your humble columnist’s parents, were married during an era when the world was a different place for sure. However, through thick and thin they have stood tall, raised two sons, and provided a rock solid foundation of support and guidance.
I have long said anything positive I have accomplished is because of them. In reality, I have no excuse for not accomplishing more. Much more.
