“Surfing Soulmates”–Johnny and Rosemari Rice. I love this because their story is so similar to my relationship with my husband Tom. Met and fell in love young, both surfers, one of us Native, lost contact for decades, reconnected and married later in life. Both men are even board shapers. Such a great story. I wrote about Johnny for Indian Country Today, and as it turns out it was only six months before his death. RIP Johnny Rice. You were loved and honored.
