Faye Asseln recalled, “I had a little crush on him and said to myself, ‘Someday I’d like to meet somebody like him.’ ” He noticed her, too. “She hung on to the walls to get to class,” said Bill Asseln. Faye was born with cerebral palsy. Her mother was told she wouldn’t live beyond her fifth birthday, but Faye proved to be a fighter. She had to cling to the walls at school because she didn’t have a walker or a cane. She said, “Would you believe it?
