How did you meet?:
Roy and Samantha met at Roy’s last high school track meet. Both Roy and Samantha were competing in the Nassau County championship race. After exchanging glances throughout the meet, Roy approached Samantha before they left and said he couldn’t leave without getting the phone number of the most beautiful girl he’s ever seen. Later that night, during their first phone conversation, after learning that Samantha’s mother grew up in the same church that Roy did said, “Samantha, I’m going to marry you”.. thirteen years later he kept that promise.
