My Wife


It’s our 34th anniversary and I thought I would take a few minutes to gush over Pearl. I still consider myself the luckiest man on Earth just because I get to wake up with her everyday.

Through the years we’ve built a life together that I think most people would envy. Side by side we’ve seen great times, rough times. But always the time is filled with love. We actually have only been apart a few days since we … well actually since we started dating. She is the love of my life and I can feel that I am for her.


Together we have built a beautiful family. She is such a good mother and grandmother. When my daughter was born my father actually commented about how good she was. ( My brother told me once that I got the last good woman on Earth). She loves these people and loves to share in their accomplishments especially those of the worlds cutest grandkids. We’re looking forward to seeing the people that those kids grow into. And we’re already proud of the people that our kids have grown into. Our son-in-law and daughter-in-law are spectacular and loved as if they were born to us.

She has seen me through some of the toughest times of my life. She practically kept me from collapsing in grief when my brother and mother passed. More recently, she helped me through a surgery and got me back on my feet. I had a cyst in my neck and every test was coming out good, but my surgeon had a way of sucking all hope out of me every time I talked to her. Pearl would prop me back up and that would remind me of what I was fighting for. After my surgery( everything was fine) Pearl had to take care of me. She was my nurse. I had a drain in my neck and she had to measure and empty little vials of Bryan juice for a few days, prop me up in bed , and help me bathe( kind of enjoyed that part). As if I didn’t love her enough, the way she cared for me that gave me a whole new perspective on how much she loved me.

She is kind to everyone . A friend of ours calls her ” A Pearl Of Great Price”. There’s no price to be paid. Pearl had good parents and they raised her to be accepting of everyone. Sometimes people misunderstand that and take advantage of her kind heart but she still puts it out there to be shared . It’s a quality that I wish I had, but with me once you hurt me it’s very difficult for me to let you back in. Something I need to work on.

I could go on forever for the love of my life but I have to stop somewhere. Let me just say this , like most people we fell into a life rut for a while but we’re climbing out of that. We’re being more adventurous . Getting out hiking , kayaking and biking. It’s been a lot of fun.


Pearl has been the most important person in my life for more than 34 years I can’t even imagine where I’d be without her. But I do know this, we are inseparable. We are one flesh and nothing will ever change my love for her. I love you Pearl, to the moon and back.
