Kristi was just a girl from west Georgia; she wasn’t the prettiest, but she was very talented and had a caring personality. A bit of a dreamer, mostly of getting out of that small town and doing something with her life that mattered one day. Kristi had been dating Jay, a boy from a neighboring town she met in night school, and she was sure he was the love of her life. Jay was a bit older and had plans to join the Navy after high school. He joined the Navy and shortly after asked Kristi to marry him. She excitedly said yes and they decided to marry after she graduated high school.
What if you didn’t have love? What would you do? Would you give up on the world and everyone in it, or would you keep looking until you found it?

Beth was a small-town girl with a dream of becoming a singer one day. She sang in the church and school choirs and had the occasional solo but was a bit shy about her talent.

Daddy was always healthy. I don't remember him going to the doctor much when I was younger but as he aged of course there were issues that needed to be addressed. He never had any very serious problems a couple of scares that turned out to be nothing, until 1998 when he had an accident. After that it seemed to be one thing after another and Daddy always seemed so sad.
