Joanne and Clark listen to Juanita’s stories. Juanita told about how she met her long-time partner Wally when he was in prison. “It’s helps to meet your mate in jail, especially when he’s in jail and you’re not,” she said.

Juanita says, “I think I’ve had a pretty good life. The best thing that happened was meeting Wally. We never got married. We didn’t need anyone to tell us that we could sleep together, and it cost money for a marriage license. I still miss that man.” We do too. Wally died at age 93 in 2002.
