Some of us have been fortunate enough to be married to our soulmates, which have been defined as:
A person with whom you have an immediate connection the moment you meet — a connection so strong that you are drawn to them in a way you have never experienced before. As this connection develops over time, you experience a love so deep, strong and complex, that you begin to doubt that you have ever truly loved anyone prior. Your soulmate understands and connects with you in every way and on every level, which brings a sense of peace, calmness and happiness when you are around them. (Urban Dictionary)
When asked what she’s been up to for the last 45 years, Cheryl McNulty Hall answered: OMG that is scary! It’s hard to believe it’s been that long!
She has been married to her soul mate and love of her life for 39 years this November. They live on the beach in Channel Islands (Oxnard area) and love it.
When she graduated from college, she went to work for a dentist and was the office manager for 14 years. That’s where she met her husband, Hugh. He was the sales rep for a dental company. They moved to the beach and she went to work as a sales rep for a title company for the last 27 years until the market crash a few years ago. So she had her real estate license for the past 30 years and that’s what she’s doing and has never looked back!
They have a daughter, Heather, who graduated from USC in 2005. (Yay, another fellow USC grad!) She got a scholarship to the Marshall School of Business where she graduated and that’s where she met her husband. They are both in sales and live in Ventura about 7 miles away. (That’s where my son lives!) They don’t have any grandkids yet but are working on it with a trip to Italy!
Cheryl is still fortunate enough to have both her parents and they live in Summerland on 13 acres which they got after we all graduated from Burbank High.
Cheryl just got back from a vacation in Mammoth where they took an RV and went camping and fishing.
Keep those cards and letters coming!
(And thank you all for your words of condolence and sympathy on the August 28th passing of my husband Carl Crosier, who was also my soul mate for 37 years.)
