Early on a morning in early September 1951 my sweetheart and I stood on this beautiful promontory and bade each other a fond farewell. Shortly thereafter we descended into the valley, and Ann registered as a student at Appalachian State College in Boone, North Carolina.
Ann at Appalachian State
I was a college student at Chapel Hill, and I had no automobile. I soon discovered that making my way from Chapel Hill to Boone was extremely difficult, and I saw Ann only once over the next three months. I was absolutely miserable, and I had great difficulty concentrating on my studies. Something had to give. The upshot was, in December we got married.

Then Ann joined me in Chapel Hill.
Love will find a way.
