    Wow, loved hearing this again. Jerry is my `baby' brother and we ALL were so glad to see them click so fast. I have a photo of them together in a school play..he was Prince Charming and for the life of me I cannot remember who Judy was suppose to be. They were so cute and bless bess, they still are. Thanks for sharing their Love Story!! Geraldine Bettis Lister

    How I LOVED hearing this interview and remembering being on the fringe of Jerry and Judy's lives as their romance was unfolding! I was Judy's secretary at the school where she was the principal. I remember loving Jerry before I met him because he had brought a new happiness, a new sparkle to my Judy! When I did meet him, it was very evident that he treasured her. How sweet that the years have only increased their love for each other. Thank you for sharing their "Happily Ever After."

    Delightful love story… and true! Indeed, you two have worked hard to embrace each other's families. Mighty glad Floyd and I are among them. Happy Valentine's Day. Mary Bettis

    It is wonderful to hear this TRUE fairy tale again. Shelby’s accolades compliments and completes the chronicle. Might as well let a little secret out. My wife, Rashmi, had to coach this rocket scientist how to woo Judy like a normal person! Now, instead of one true friend, we have two.

  6. Angela says:

    What a beautiful way to tell the World of your abiding Love! A heart felt love story with all the fears, triumphs, faith and boldness required to step forward in life. Shelby's words shattered the core of my heart, fully understanding that we have to Let Go and Let God IN; a heartbreaking story in the sense that the walls of the heart must come down in order to LOVE more deeply. What a wonderful story, something I will treasure to remind me of the same lessons Learned in Love…. God Bless all of you, You will always be a part of my Family, Blessings Always. Thank You KOSU for sharing this perpetual love story! Love, Angela
