“Exactly here is where I met my husband 40 years ago. It was my birthday and together with a friend we just bought bikes on credit. We wanted to try them out so we decided to go to the park. In the park there was a group of boys and we got to talk. All of a sudden one of the boys started teasing me and took away my bike key. He told me that if I wanted my key back I would have to come and chase him to get it. He was handsome and nice so I did not mind one bit. After that day we became a couple and a few years later we got married. Unfortunately, my husband passed away about a year ago. Life without him is very hard and I miss him every day but I’m a blessed person. I have had a wonderful marriage.”
