We met at church in Starkville

“She is from Thailand, I was born and raised in the Delta in Cleveland, Mississippi. We met at church in Starkville.”

“I got my masters degree at Mississippi State and stayed there for 30 years doing statistics and data for the Vet Center. We moved here last year after we retired. The people in the church kept encouraging us to sit together. We both like sports so he asked me to a basketball game. We just went as friends. We were friends for four years before we started dating. I told my mom I wasn’t going to get married. For the Asian people, when you pass 30 it is considered to be an old maid. I just thought I would be by myself with my friends and family. I was happy with my single life.”

“I had been married before so I thought I needed to take it slow and easy the next time. We got to know each other. I think that is the way to do it.”

“We were best friends when we got married. We like to travel together and go to Thailand every year. I came here for my education because my best friend, who is like a sister to me, came to Mississippi State. My dad said I had to have someone here before he would let me come. I have another friend here and we love each other like sisters, too. ”

“In Thailand, they call their best friends sisters. She started telling me about all of these sisters and I wondered how many sisters do you have?”

“I have three sisters here and three real sisters in Thailand.”
