My name is Justin Boat and this is my short-story-bio.

I was born in Washington D.C on January 5, 1922. My mother's name was Victoria Boat. She was the best mother any one could ever have. She would have done anything and everything for me. My dad on the other hand died 2 months before I was born.

I spent most of my childhood in D.C. When I was 15 my mom got a job in Memphis Tennessee. So we had to move, I thought that was the end of my life. Thank goodness on my first day I meet this girl named Hilary Paint. She the prettiest girl I have ever seen. Yet, in the beginning we were just friends.

Then when I was 20 I asked her out. At first she was shocked, but then she said yes. We were so close like two peas in a pod. Two years to the day of asking her out I asked her to marry me. At first she was shocked then she said, yes. We got married June 29, 1945. I was the luckiest man alive. We did everything together.

On May 19, 1953, Taylor Boat was born. She was so small and beautiful. One week after she was born, she died of heart problems. Hilary was never the same.

After a while Hilary, got back in the swing of things. We were again two peas in a pod.

On February 2, 2008. Hilary found out she had cancer in her right arm. The doctors could not remove it, and there was no hope. She would die in less than 2 months. I couldn't believe them. I made them let me take her home. I took care of her, I never leaved her side.

On December 9, 2010, she died. Now I am one pea in an empty pod.

Justin Wills Boat was born January 5, 1922. He died December 19, 2010 at about 12:00 a.m. Doctors sat it was a natural death. He died 10 days after his wife Hilary Paint Boat of 67 years. My they rest in peace...
