“When I dance, I forget everything else and just feel completely happy.” ~Katherine Jenkins
Will attended school with Gloria’s sister. After years had passed, Will agreed to go to a soda fountain because his friend had wanted to dance with Gloria. The friend had one dance with Gloria and then Will took a chance and danced with Gloria, they danced the rest of the evening and talked until the wee hours of the morning.
For most of the beginning of their relationship, Will was working while Gloria was attending school in another town. During her vacations she came home and Will was there, having patiently waited to take her out on the town. His proposal was “nothing fancy” as they recall, but it didn’t need to be, it was love at first sight for both of them. After having talked all night the first night they found a connection that was irreplaceable and it was at that moment, from the beginning, that they both knew they had found “the one.” It was mutual comfort for them both and no surprise that they equally shared their first “I love you” to one another.
They were married in Sacramento, California at a Presbyterian Church. Since they met they have found “consistent comfort” in one another and have truly believed that is what has made their life better.
Their secret to a lasting marriage is remaining “best friends and enjoying each other’s company.”
