How it all began….
It’s difficult to pin point when Robert and Amelia met, however, one thing that can be said about them is that it was indeed Divine Intervention that brought them together. The couple formally met in May of 2002 on the campus of Oklahoma City University at Cokesbury Court Apartments where Amelia was then employed. Robert was just accepted into the BRIN program and was making apartment arrangements for the summer. Amelia assisted him by providing him with an application for residency and then proceeded to have a conversation with one of her residents that lived in her building. That resident asked her where she was from and she replied that she was from Lawton. The resident she was speaking to was from Indonesia and did not know where Lawton was, so Amelia began to explain where Lawton was located. Robert overheard this conversation and after he completed his application, he initiated a conversation with Amelia by saying, “Excuse me…. I heard you say that you were from Lawton…..??”
….and the rest as most say is history….
