Ken and Dyanne Rodli's fairytale romance began in high school and blossomed into a glorious, 52-year marriage blessed with three children and five grandchildren. Like all couples, Ken and Dyanne faced tragedies and triumphs, but nothing could have prepared them for Dyanne's devastating, twelve-year medical odyssey that began in 2008. Doctors said there was no hope and the prognosis was dire, but Dyanne defied all medical and scientific odds, outliving expectations by more than a decade.
Ken and Dyanne's unwavering faith and undying belief that everything happens for an earthly and an eternal reason, propelled the couple through unimaginable adversity. As Dyanne's only caregiver for more than twelve years, Ken's love and respect for her as a true warrior and survivor molded his commitment and deepened his love to a level far beyond any concern for himself.
Buoyed by Dyanne's personal motto of, "Do Not Quit: Someone is praying for you and you will make it through the storm. God is good all the time!" the Rodlis never gave up and never gave in, treating every day together as the treasure it was meant to be.
The love expressed through their story is sure to uplift, inspire, and enliven every reader, but especially those who are caregivers, or who are experiencing the serious illness of themselves or a loved one.
