He was a widower and she a widow.
They had known each other for many years,
being high school classmates and
having attended many reunions over the years.

On this 50th anniversary of their class.
they made a foursome with two other singles.
They had a wonderful evening, spirits high.
There was a special spark between the two.
Finally, he picked up courage to ask her,
"Will you marry me?" .
After a few seconds of careful consideration
she answered, "Yes, yes I will!"
He was overjoyed. .
But the next morning he was troubled.
He couldn't remember if she said yes or no.
Try as he would, he just could not recall.
With fear and embarrassment he picked up the phone
and called her.
Apologizing for his memory problems,
he said, "When I asked if you would marry me,
did you say 'yes' or 'no'?"
"Silly man! I said YES, and I meant it with all my heart."
Then she continued, "And I am so glad you called
because I couldn't remember who had asked me!"
