Yes, it's true. I am engaged to be married! Her name is Darla Meeks Ball. We have known each other since childhood, and our families have been entertwined since before we were born. We dated some in our late teens, but life drew us apart geographically and we've just been fans of each other for the past 30 years. It became instantly apparent when we began communicating last Christmas that our love had been there all along, and we aren't wasting any time. I will post the wedding information later.
