    When Bill met Shelley: No disability could keep them apart

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs...-disability-could-keep-them-apart/?tid=pm_pop

    “If you’re that in love, age doesn’t mean a thing. Even though my mind was young and my heart was young — somewhere inside my head I was mentally old enough.”

    –Bill Ott

    “You know that scene in ‘Dirty Dancing’ where Baby meets Johnny for the first time? It was kind of like that.”

    –Shelley Belgard​

    What a love story! Thanks for posting this.

    We had neighbors who had met at a club for young folks with disabilities. His was physical and hers was mental due to strokes at a very young age. They were married for over 30 years before the wife passed away. I hope Bill and Shelley have many happy years together.
