While we were aware of each other in 1948, we began going together in 1949 when I was 15 and Judy was 13. We were both members of the LTF (Leaders Training Fellowship) and saw each other at meetings during the ensuing year. We began going steadily with a date at a pre-season Bears game in September 1950. We went to each annual pre-season Bears game for the next 3 years, and were married on the day of the pre-season Bears game in 1954. The rest is history, having just passed our 51st anniversary. In addition to 4 children, we have 10 grandchildren, 5 of whom were born and reside in Israel (children of our oldest son).
