I wasn't sure where to post this...My aunt and uncle will be married 63 years this year and unfortunately aunt mary has alzheimer's. This weekend relatives from all over came together in Montgomery to celebrate Uncle Norman's 78th birthday...he was so touched by everyone coming in for him...I made a video as tribute to their love and albeit a bit long it's in 3 parts...the first them talking about how they met, then a photo history of them up until now and then the heartwrenching part where she has alzheimers and knows enough to say life is not perfect...then to show how uncle norman, at his age, does everything for her...it's their love story and I hope you will take a few minute to watch it. I'm so blessed to still have them in my life and wanted to share with you their love story.

I hope this works...if it doesn't let me know and I'll see if I can find another way to link it up.
Hugs...Dee

God Bless them....they seem still so in love!

Thank you Di...I know...Uncle Norman is the way he is in the video with Aunt Mary all the time...he has such patience and love and will not allow her to go to a nursing home. Their love story is beyond anything I've ever seen.

If uncle is 78 and been married 63 years, he got married at
age 15? WOW! That's incredible!!!
