Kathleen Fucci met, John, her future husband, on a blind date. She was 38-years-old at the time, had never been married, and didn’t have children.
The mutual friend who arranged their date began his description of John by saying, “Um … why don’t you sit down?”
He told Kathleen that John was a widower with three children. His wife, Jeanine, had died from cancer the year before at the age of 34.
Despite the uncertainty Kathleen and John felt going into that first encounter, their relationship blossomed.
