***As told by JoAnn
On March 13th 2014 , I had a severe car wreck that I should have not made it through. Flipping up 8 times and landing upside down , when I was to myself , my Dad who had passed away in 1995 was sitting beside me and said "JoAnn you are not done yet.." I had items in my car - fragile items (nothing broke) , but there was a silver Hummingbird gripped in my hand. It came lose from the rear view mirror and it was my Dad's..
Fast forward until Sept. 14, 1995 , first time I had ever lived alone...glad to be by myself , no more abuse etc.. BUT THAT DAY GOD HAD SOMETHING PLANNED.
I had driven past some signs that said Wal Mart Now Hiring. I went in and was hired on the spot. Returning the next day this gentleman was there - did not talk much. Well I was going to fix that, lol..
We spent 6 weeks in that hiring center, then off we go to open this new wonderful store )Warren , me and another lady.) I guess misfits because I kept telling everyone poems. and we exchanged phone numbers.
As the store opened Warren became a greeter and I became a little of everything. Everyday when I walked in Warren would say "JoAnn ROCKS"....LOL At Thanksgiving he asked me to go eat with him and I said "sure it will be good to get out." We had one CSM that said "he is going to marry you" and in return I said "over my dead body."
I started going to church with him - he drove 1 hour to get me , 2 hrs to the church and then took me home. On February 16th he asked me to marry him and on May 15th we had my entire family with us at the Richter Chapel in Cullman. My family life had came full circle.
My family loved him, grandchildren loved him. I feel that my Dad hand picked, along with GOD, WARREN for me.
We dance all the time. I stand on his toes so as not to miss a beat..
THIS IS OUR LOVE STORY.. NOT ONLY DOES WAL-MART OFFER LOW PRICES.. THEY CAN END UP HAVING THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE.. - MAY 15TH will be 5 YEARS.
