They were married in 2002, and the rest is history!

David and Sheila went to the movie Honey Suckle Rose


How long have they been together
36 years


What makes them laugh or smile about one another:
a. When one of us leaves a little gift or card for the other
b. Finishing a job together
c. Hearing the other person’s stories when they have been visiting their two grandsons

 

Clayton & Shelia Wicks Love Story:

Clayton Sheila

 

Details of first date:
Although we went to the same school, we were not high school sweethearts.  It was after we both graduated and both had moved to Swift Current before we ventured on our first date.  We attended a Good Brothers concert in the basement of the Elks Hall.  There was only about 30 of us there and we sat on hall chairs and listened to “Red Neck Mother” “Brown-Eyed Girl” “Fox on the Run” “Kitty Star” and many more.  After the concert, we finished off the evening with a few drinks at the local “watering hole” Healy Hotel.
 
How long we have been together:
Things progressed steadily after that date for about a year and then we got engaged.  Married eight months after that.  Our 35th anniversary is in May so we have been together for about 37 years.  Without doubt, we have been in love unconditionally.  We can say we’ve seen good time and hard times but our love has kept us together.
What we love most about each other:
Our unconditional love for each other, our son, our daughter, their spouses and our grandkids and the love being returned is without question most valuable quality in our lives.
 
Things I love about Sheila
Companionship – the best mate I could have ever found
Unconditional love – good times – bad times – always at my side
Incredibly smart and passionate
Her love for family
Her love for friendships
She can put up with me!
 
Things I love about Clayton
Unconditional love for myself, son & daughter, their spouses and grandkids
He makes me laugh, (even when I might not be in the mood)
Watching him interact with our three grandchildren and how they look at him with such love and adoration warms my heart
Oh Yeah! It sure doesn’t hurt that he is a fantastic cook!
