Anne and Richard Lafferty

Anne, 52, and Richard, 61, met through an acquaintance while Anne was attending Pfeiffer College. Richard was the director of public relations and a friendly face. Neither thought of it as a date when Richard, who had his pilot’s license, offered to take Anne flying on the afternoon of Halloween 1982. But they fell in love quickly and the couple married Feb. 4, 1984. They live in Concord and Anne tells their story.
