What a wonderful story. I do not know the Cross's but wish them all the best. Thank you to the staff writer for researching and writing this.

I often see Irina & Truman walking through the terrace and think "oh there's Irina and her husband". (Irina is one of the great volunteer with the Friends of the Palo Alto Library) Now, I'll see them a bit differently and smile. What a wonderful love story. Thanks for writing this piece for Halloween.

Yes, a wonderful story! I've known Truman and Irina for years, and have marveled at how they speak of each other as only couples in love do. They've each given much to our community, and it's such a pleasure to read about them. Thank you!
