Fred is a retired Air Force fighter pilot and program manager. His first marriage, to Nancy, a pediatric nurse, lasted 33 years. Jeri was also a pediatric nurse. Her first marriage, to Steve, an Air Force Chaplain, lasted 27 years. Fred and Jeri have written a book describing their path through their grief and the rebuilding of their lives.
