On July 10th 1990, I went out to purchase a vehicle. That fateful day I “bought a van and got a man” as I like to tell people. Gary Miller had just moved to Napa to run the Fleeting department at the Ford Dealership and I was the lucky person who instantly knew I was in the presence of a spectacular, extraordinary human being (and a really cute one as well!)
Well, the moment that van was in my driveway we started dating. We had our first date at a neighborhood restaurant and just as he was leaving he reached into a flower in my garden and handed me seeds. “I can make this garden grow” he said and what a garden he created in my life from that day forward both literally and figuratively.
