Jeffry, Windsor and Spyer’s love story is one of the most grandly inspirational of all our stories.

I loved reading it again, even though I knew the outcome in advance.

I’m reminded of my own late husband’s motorized wheelchair. He needed it in the last year of his life.

I’m also reminded that legally, he was never my husband.

Thanks to the heroes of our stories, young people today don’t have to face the same obstacles.
