“For better or worse”. A commitment most of us have promised to on our wedding day. On such a beautiful occasion we tend to envision only the best in everything. However, for one couple the worst brought out the best in their relationship.
Deciding to travel the world versus putting his wife in a nursing home, Andy chose to make the best out of their frightening situation. And in doing so they have created a life of love, devotion, and adventure.
“My parents have really tested the ‘for better or worse, in sickness and in health’ part of their wedding vows,” says daughter Allison Peters, “but my mom getting sick never changed their love for one another. It just made it grow in a different direction, and I think it focused them to live each day to the fullest and not put off things they wanted to do. That’s why they’ve traveled the world.”
