Doug and Carol's Wedding
Please sign my guest book at the end of this page. Thank You.
Doug and Carol met on the internet on ICQ in the fall of 1998. Carol was looking for a new hobby as she had given up crafts when her husband took sick in 1991 and she had to stay at home to take care of him until he passed away in 1995.
Doug lived in Burlington Iowa and had put his wife in the nursing home that year with Picks disease and was looking for some comunication on his computor with someone else as there was very little info on caring for someone with Pick's Disease.
My grandson hooked me up on my new computor with ICQ as he said I needed to find others to talk to. (And I figured if my grandkids could learn to run the computor that I could too)
Well in March of 2000 we met and visited each other several times a year, giving Doug some respite time which is critical for all caregivers. Doug's wife passed away in Jan 2003. This spring he poped the question and we were married on Aug 23rd in my garden in Chatham Ontario Canada.
