Lee was a widower of several years with three daughters, and Libby a single mom for 18 years with a son and step-daughter. Neither of them was interested in being married just for the sake of being married, but their hearts were stirred individually to begin believing that God was working to bring each of them the mate of His design. God soon began to work through a dating website, bridging a 1,000 mile gap between them. “Quickly, we both found our outlooks on life, temperament, and hearts drawing us to each other. The more we knew, the more we fell in love. Each step of our journey felt like arriving home.” After many trips for Lee to Florida and Libby to Kansas City, Lee popped the question in January of 2013. “That's when we discovered Especially Jewelry with Del and Julie Cook. Their warm hearts, expertise, and superb customer service won us over. We continue to marvel over the rose gold wedding ring we chose to represent our covenant to God and to each other. It is a constant reminder of God's good work in us and our commitment to each other.”
Lee and Libby are witnessing the joy of their extended families joining together and look forward to launching into the good works prepared for them to be a part of. Their lives continue to be enriched and blessed, and their love grows stronger as they walk this life together.
