Bob and Diane Stonecipher met in Houston while Bob was in medical school and Diane was a nurse. For their first date, Bob asked if Diane wanted tickets to a Houston Rockets game and within nine months, they were married.

“Love starts with a spark and then you have to make a decision whether that spark turns into eternal flame, to sound a little cliché. But it is,” Diane Stonecipher says. “It becomes a comfort and a safe and nurturing place to live out your dreams and experience the world besides somebody who is constant, [who] will be there and you know you’ll be there for them.”
