The someone special in my life is my fiancé Chester Alsip. I’ve known him and his family of eight brothers and sisters, etc. for 60 years. He is the sweetest, most understanding, patient, friendly man I’ve ever known.
He always has a kind word for everyone and a sweet smile on his face. He is 80-years-old and we fell in love with each other. I’m 74-years-old.
I would like to nominate my aunt, Hazel Barnett Cammack, for your special valentine issue.
She has always been the one in the family that all her brother, sisters, nieces and nephews depend on when anything is needed. She has helped me on numerous times, but never more than in the last several weeks.
You see, I fell on Jan. 3 and broke both elbows. Needless to say, the first couple of weeks, I was pretty helpless. She was at my house every day the first two weeks.
