She shares her first-date experience with Limbaugh. “He was a lot of fun,” Roxy recalls of their first get-together. “He could talk the entire evening away. He would draw you out, find out what your interests were, and then start arguing with you. Because I was just back from New York City, there were a lot of New York jokes from him. `How could you live there?’ Or he would say to other people, `She has no opinions, she lived in New York.’ It certainly was ironic when you think that he ended up there himself.”
The couples fell in love and started seeing one another, they, later on, tied the knot on Sept. 24, 1977, at the Centenary United Methodist Church in Cape Girardeau in a beautiful private wedding ceremony that was attended by both close friends and family.
