He was from South Carolina and all this Baptist preacher ever wanted in life was to provide leadership to a Bible College. All his life, he worked for the position and eventually attained it. As he fulfilled his life’s dream and vocation, the disease of Alzheimer’s struck his wife. Her health degenerated to the point where he could not possibly take care of her and work his full-time job. The preacher came to a decision—to give up his position as president of the Bible College. His peers were incredulous. “What are you doing?” they asked. “Your wife doesn’t even know who you are!”

The man answered, “She might not know who I am, but I know who she is. She’s the woman I made a promise to until death do us part.” (1)
