Cindy from Florida

My husband Larry has been blind for 42 years. I’ve been helping him for over 50 years. We were high school sweethearts and I’ve never weaved away from him. Not only am I his wife but I’m his friend, his nurse, his mother of his children. I take care of him and make sure he’s good. Larry and I have been inseparable ever since we met. I don’t need to do some of the things he asks for but I always do. That’s what being his wife is all about. In the morning, in the afternoon, and in the jiffy. I am always there.
