James and Diana Groves
Jan 28, 2022
I first saw the love of my life at a street dance in front of the library. My best friend and roommate was dating her best friend. On my birthday, in September of 1973, I came home from work and they had asked her over to our house to meet me. So, she was actually my birthday present! I was recently divorced and had custody of my 3 year old daughter, we were living in a house with 4 of my friends. "5 men and a baby". It was truly love at first sight! I quit dating everyone and dated my future wife for about 6 months and we got engaged, we married on May 31, 1975 after she graduated. We have 2 children and a storybook marriage that has now lasted 45 years. My wife Diana is simply the love of my life, we've truly had a storybook marriage and life together. We now have 6 wonderful grandchildren. Life is good! And, we continue to be connected to MSU. Go Racers!!
