“I had always hoped and planned to grow up and find my ordinary wife, raise an ordinary churchgoing family in the ordinary healthy Christian way. But that was not to be. Now after a lifetime, and many tears of sorrow and joy I will attempt to tell you about my loved one.” -- Rick Aper

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Rick Aper’s new book tells the story of a man’s most cherished loved one.

Rick Aper was the second of three sons. He was raised in a middle class working family that resided in a small Northern Illinois town. All he ever really wanted was to grow up and find a perfect wife, so he could live a happy and good life with children of his own. Unfortunately, he always seemed to be doing the wrong things with the wrong friends. Within a year of graduating from high school, nine of his closest acquaintances were dead and one was in prison. Upon recognizing the need to change, he repented for his sins and changed the direction of his life. He eventually did find a perfect wife whose name was Linda Diane Gribben Aper.

His bride was a woman who raised two sons. She always kept a beautiful house. She made the beds every day. She read, sang, and prayed with her boys every day. She even made their baby food. She drove the boys to school every day. She assisted the director of the children's choir. She coached teen Bible quizzing for 17 years. She crocheted baby blankets for every niece and nephew as they were born. She painted amazing works of art. She always had the time to be Rick’s best friend. She was the girl he always dreamed about. All of the things she did might seem fairly ordinary. For an ordinary person, they might be, but Linda was no ordinary person. This is her story.
