Meeting Terry and Marriage:

“[Rebecca] was playing piano at my church… I went, ‘You play that piano really nice.’ She was like, ‘Yeah, OK.’ I was in the friend zone. What happened was I earned my way in. I treated her with respect and I knew. I said ‘This is the one.’ … I took my time. I was not going to mess that up.”
Before getting married to Terry, Rebecca had a daughter with Charles Burton named Naomi.

“I have nothing but pride for my husband. This is a subject worth fighting over. We spent a lot of our own money to fight. Which we got back. I got to see my husband fight for his rights in a town where he had to put up with a lot of stuff to work. It was a great moral victory.”
