Linda & Bill (Avila Lighthouse, CA)Linda lost her husband about 4 years ago and Bill lost his wife just over 2 years ago. Mutual friends introduced us and we didn't get together until we met at a football game a year later. We met for coffee one friday before a soccer game and enjoyed the game that night together and become friends. That was now 9 months ago and we have fallen in love with each other. What brought us together was a common bond of grief, but what makes it so special is our common love of family, faith, good friends, things we love to do together. We both are very active in the community and have a tremendous number of friends in common although we had never met before. Both having lived in the community for most of our adult lives and raising our kids here, we have many mutual good friends. We like to stay active and travel. Both of us volunteer for various organizations and on boards. We were engaged at Pismo Beach on a morning walk down the beach.
