My Sailing Tis of Thee
Two couples who never met before turned out to have much in common as they cruised into the sunset on the York River. Veda May and her beau Avery Allen are respectively a longtime Navy paralegal and Veterans Administration Hospital specialist for spinal cord injuries. Delores Fortuna and her husband Tom are respectively an elementary school teacher and a homeless shelter advocate. Together they comprised more public service than any other crew this season. We talked a lot about misfortune, compassion and hope.
