When Jerry D. Campbell met his co-worker Veta, there was a policy that forbade employees from dating each other. Of course, they broke it – and ended up being sweethearts for forty-seven years.
But when Veta died in April 2010, she left behind a husband devastated by grief. By forcing himself to work through it, he was able to deal with his loss while still enjoying life.
