The drumbeat of significant cancer events over the ensuing years cause Debbie and Chuck to grow in their love for each other while developing a strong faith and never-give-up philosophy as she is told at several points in the cancer battle to get her affairs in order. At one low point, having been told that there are over a dozen tumor throughout her liver, she pleads with God to keep her alive long enough to see her sons graduate from high school. She then opens her Bible and by chance drops her finger onto Psalm 128:6 which says "...and may you live to see your children's children." She takes this as a promise from God which does indeed happen as she survives to see her sons married and three granddaughters to be born. Her courageous fight continues until she passes away on her oldest granddaughter's fifth birthday in 2014. Chuck then has to wrestle with the loss and find a way to move on with life in order to fulfill his promise to Debbie that he would be okay.

Chuck and Debbie Wilson were married for 37 years. The proud parents of two outstanding young men, they originally hailed from upstate New York before living all over the country as a Navy family. They worked on this book together for nearly twenty years, before Chuck finished it in 2017. Chuck now resides in Virginia Beach, where he enjoys writing, yoga, and spoiling his three beautiful granddaughters.
