Letter: If it needs to be done, Jeannie does it


This is a tribute to Jeannie: L. Jeanne Waite/Oldfather. I met Jeanne on July 4th and we were married on June 17th. Almost 19 years laughing and loving.

About six years ago, I became somewhat handicapped. I have difficulty walking or even standing. She now helps me move around with the aid of a lane-walker or electric scooter. She drives me to appointments, etc. and takes care of all medications, etc. If it needs to be done, Jeannie does it.

Needless to say, I love her very much.

Bill Oldfather

Bill, I can relate to what you are saying. For those of us who cannot always take care of our own needs, it is very nice to have a helping hand. You and I both are very lucky to have a wife to help us out. I am very thankful.

Most awesome letter to the editor that I have read in some time. Thank you for sharing and you both sound lucky to have found each other. True love does exist and takes work but is well worth it when you find it..
