Interview with Bill & Bonnie: "Love looks not with the eyes but with the mind."
On 04/08/2016, under a majestic old oak tree, I officiated the wedding for Bill & Bonnie. Retinitis Pigmentosa has plagued Bill his whole life, slowly deteriorating his vision. There is no cure. As Shakespeare said, "Love looks not with the eyes but with the mind," I can tell you Bill & Bonnie have found a deep & beautiful love with one another. Bonnie has had to increase her role as the seeing partner (driving, and so forth) & Bill has had to learn to accept this. Their love, friendship, & raucous sense of humor is infectious, a beautiful thing to behold. In my own marriage, in my role as the one who needs care, Bill & Bonnie have so very much to teach me. I am forever grateful for their example & their lessons.
