Things progressed rapidly, and, by the end of June, Patricia had invited Renee to a family brunch at her parents’ house in Washington the weekend of her sister’s wedding. “Like it just made sense.” Shortly after the move, Patricia’s father, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist William Raspberry, asked, or rather insisted, that Patricia invite Renee to dinner with the family and his close friends at his home in Washington.And, as she suspected, the connection and chemistry between Renee and Patricia was immediate and palpable.Renee says she knew then and there that she would marry Patricia, if given the chance. “When she spoke, and this deep voice came out of this beautiful face, I started getting dizzy and physically became clumsy.” (That’s not an exaggeration.

“We will listen to a song and at the very same beat, we’ll both just go, ‘Mmm.’ I mean, it happens so often now, we just laugh.” They each left with the other’s number, and a feeling of hope and confidence.
