The project was approved in the

It's the one thing Macel says
they always had in common - the place
where they first met.


"I played the piano at the church
and my friend played the organ. And
one night, somebody told him that they
had some pretty girls over there."


It wasn't the beginning you might
expect.


Macel wasn't even single.


"I was engaged to someone else,
but that didn't bother him at all"


And Jerry had to work to win his
girl.


"He would write me letters and
his friend, he would write me letters
too. They happened to be in the same
area, and so he said I'll take those
letters and mail them for you. And so
the friend would give him the letters
and he would (laughs) tear them up!"


But Macel says she never saw
herself marrying anyone but Jerry.


She says his big heart pulled her
in.


"You could come and cut his arm
off and he'd say 'oh, that's ok, don't
worry about it' (laughs), he's just
that type of person, and once somebody
gets to know him, they just can't
believe that they like him."


Falwell says her husband won over
many enemies with a selfless quality.


Giving the shoes off his feet to
a man without a pair of his own.


"He says what size do you wear?
And the man says 11 and a half. And he
says, that's what size I wear. Took
them off and gave them to him, came
home with just his socks on."


Falwell says her husband loved to
have fun - she fell victim to many of
his pranks.


"I was brushing my teeth and I
heard this horrible sound and I thought
'what is that?!' And I turned around
and looked and there was an alligator

Tribe vs. Hokies This time of year you rarely get
a great pitching effort, so you better
have some solid defense.


Tech's Jose Cueto will show some
nice glove action in left field as he
comes up with nice snag looking into


the sun of this wind blown shot by Greg
Maliniack on the warning track.


This game would feature 28 hits
and 15 runs. Austin Wates' bloop
single will be just enough to get Sean
Ryan home. The Hokies beat the Tribe
10 and 5.


They will take tomorrow off and
then host Duke on Thursday, Friday and
Saturday to close out the season.
