Trevor and Sylvia Bailey

Wales

My dear parents, Trevor and Sylvia Bailey, were from a small village in Wales. My mum was a homemaker and kept the books in the local grocery store. My dad was a coal miner who went underground at 14. We knew we were poor, but so was everyone else. I owe everything I have achieved to their love, wisdom and guidance. I came to the USA in 1984, as education and career options were limited. I met my bride-to-be soon after. She had a four-seasons dating rule and I passed! We started dating in the spring, and I proposed the year after. I came for opportunity and stayed for love.
