“At the time that they met, Nancy and J.C. (now 77 and 83, respectively) had each been married for at least 50 years to their first spouses. Nancy’s husband had battled Parkinson’s disease with dementia for some time, while J.C.’s wife suffered from Alzheimer’s disease. Nancy and J.C. both enjoyed playing bridge and found it to be a brief respite from the stresses of their everyday lives. After the director of their bridge club introduced them and suggested they become bridge partners, they became fast friends. They soon discovered that, in addition to bridge, they shared other common interests in books, music, theater, worshipping, and a yearn to travel.
