MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire man whose wife of nearly 64 years died in March has successfully completed a first-time skydiving jump in her memory.

Eighty-three-year-old Bill Rogers, of Manchester, tells WMUR-TV (https://bit.ly/2wMn91U) he doesn’t know if his wife, Natalie, would’ve liked it, but he knows she’s smiling, and the event was about keeping her memory alive.

Rogers says he met Natalie at age 14 at a football game at Manchester’s Gill Stadium. He walked her home from the game that day, and the rest was history.

Rogers went skydiving on Sunday in Pepperell, Massachusetts, and said he’d do it again.
