I’d like to share with my LJ family that my wife, Nancy, and I have been married 40 years as of today, August 21st.

I’ve been a very lucky man to have such a loving and supportive wife for so many years.

Congrats, Rich. I guess at this point you’ll have to keep her ;^)

Mimi and I were married 36 years in June. Best thing that ever happened to me.
