BEFORE WE START, I WANT TO TELL YOU A LOVE STORY. IT’S ABOUT A COUPLE OF NINTH GRADERS THAT MET ATOP THE QUARTZ MOUNTAINS IN OKLAHOMA IN 1962.

AS THE STORY GOES, HE LEANED OVER AND TRIED TO KISS HER, ONLY TO BE MET BY AN OPEN RIGHT HAND TO THE FACE….AND THE FIRE WAS IGNITED! UPON RETURNING HOME, THE COUPLE STARTED DATING AND EVENTUALLY WENT STEADY FOR THE REST OF THE SCHOOL TERM. THAT SUMMER HE MOVED TO PERRYTON, TEXAS. FOR THE NEXT THREE YEARS, THEY STAYED IN CONTACT, BUT ONLY SAW EACH OTHER ABOUT THREE TIMES TOTAL. THE LAST TIME WOULD HAVE BEEN THEIR SENIOR YEAR WHEN HE DROVE TO ELK CITY TO TAKE HER OUT ON A DATE. ACCORDING TO HER, THEY WERE TO GO OUT AGAIN THE NEXT EVENING….BUT HE HAS A VERY DIFFERENT STORY. NEEDLESS TO SAY, HE DIDN’T SHOW UP FOR THE DATE BUT, INSTEAD, HEADED TO CLINTON. AS YOU CAN IMAGINE, THIS LITTLE REDHEAD WAS VERY MAD AND UPSET WITH HIM, AND SHE TORE UP HIS SENIOR PICTURE AND GRADUATION ANNOUNCEMENT.

SHE WENT ON TO COLLEGE AND HE JOINED THE NAVY, AND THEY HAD NO CONTACT FOR THE NEXT YEAR AND A HALF. DURING CHRISTMAS OF 1966, HE RAN INTO A GENTLEMAN ON A PLANE WHILE RETURNING BACK TO HIS DUTY STATION. DURING THEIR CONVERSATION, PANHANDLE STATE UNIVERSITY CAME UP. HE SAID, “I KNOW SOMEONE THERE,” AND MENTIONED HER NAME. THE OTHER GENTLEMAN SAID, “YES, I KNOW HER. SHE DATES MY BEST FRIEND.” HE SAID, “WELL, JUST TELL HER I SAID HELLO.” WHEN SHE GOT THE MESSAGE, SHE WAS NOT IMPRESSED!

IN 1968, HE WROTE HER A LETTER WHILE STATIONED ABOARD SHIP IN THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA...BUT HE GOT NO RESPONSE. FIVE MONTHS LATER, SHE DECIDED TO WRITE HIM BACK. HOWEVER, BY THIS TIME HE WAS STATESIDE AND DID NOT RECEIVE HER LETTER.

IN THE SPRING OF 1969, HE WROTE HER A LETTER AGAIN, AND THIS TIME SHE RESPONDED. THIS WAS THE FIRST CONTACT THEY HAD HAD SINCE THEIR DATE IN 1965 FOUR YEARS EARLIER.

THEY CONTINUED TO WRITE EACH OTHER AND QUICKLY FELL IN LOVE. IN THE FALL OF 1969, HE PURCHASED A RING WHILE IN ATHENS, GREECE. HE MAILED IT TO HER WITH A LETTER ASKING HER TO MARRY HIM, AND IN HER NEXT LETTER SHE ACCEPTED. THREE MONTHS LATER, IN OCTOBER OF 1969, HE GOT OUT OF THE SERVICE AND PROMPTLY DROVE FROM SOUTH CAROLINA TO NORMAN, OKLAHOMA TO SEE HIS LITTLE REDHEAD FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 4 ½ YEARS. ONE MONTH LATER, ON NOVEMBER 15TH, 1969, THEY WERE MARRIED, AND THEY SHARED THE NEXT 49+ YEARS TOGETHER.

THIS IS JAMES & JUDI’S LOVE STORY.
