This is one of my favorite stories from my Grandparents. There are many others that I still have to document. My Grandma is 100 years old going on 101 and we still hear new stories on occasion. They were married for 57 years. TFL!

Journaling: New Years Eve 1937, Gilbert Ritchie asked Jo to marry him and they eloped. Jo had a date that night with someone else, but when Gib came for her she couldn’t resist. They knew each other and had dated some, but Gib had taken a job in Detroit and Jo never thought she’d see him again, let alone ever marry him. A death in his family brought him back to town and he began courting her. When asked what it was that she liked most about Gib, she said...“He was WILD!”
