Reg Stark and This I Believe

essayist Reg StarkEach week we’ll hear a new This I Believe essay - today from Reg Stark. He was born in Beaumont, Texas and since retiring from his career in the health care field, he has pursued his life-long dream as a full-time artist. Stark and his wife Linda were high school sweethearts and were married for 43 years before she lost her battle with cancer. Ever since, he has been finding pennies everywhere he goes. Stark believes that each coin he discovers is a sign that Linda is still with him and still looking out for him.
