At about mid-life, I discovered I had diabetes. I was ill prepared to deal with it. My adoring wife Phyliss, despite her own substantial health problems, commandeered the attack on the disease with military dispatch. The short story of how this came about is tender, loving, and heart warming. This act of love was only one of many expressions of devotion to my well-being. This is a short excerpt from the book “I Married My Teacher” which chronicles, in detail, her love and devotion to me as well as her own trials and battles with poor health. Read about her. It will enrich your life as she enriched mine.
