She was stuck in the hospital in North Dakota and somebody needed to bring her home, so it was decided that Rex and I would go. My children were older and if something happened to us, each family would still have one parent left. Morbid thinking, but reality.
The local newspaper reported the story, saying that Rex Peel and his wife April traveled north to get my sister. So we became spouses; hence, W2 and H2.
With no benefits, mind you. I doubt if there is a husband alive who would admit that two wives are better than one, and I know for a fact that one husband is all I need. I wonder if the husband on “Sister Wives” would agree? Anyway, we brought Brenda safely home. It has been a long road, but we are all beginning to adjust to the new normal for our family.
If you are a praying person, please pray for my baby sister Brenda. She will always feel her loss. One day they will be reunited.
What a glorious day that will be.

I pray for her often.
