These are my grandparents. They were high school sweethearts and they have been married for over 65 years.  Within the past year, my grandpa got sick and developed Alzheimer’s, so he lives in a nursing home now. My grandma goes to see him almost everyday, but each time she walks in he gets so surprised and excited and relieved by her presence. You can just hear the joy in his voice. It’s one of the saddest and most beautiful things I’ve ever experienced. I hope that one day I can find a marriage like theirs. They are the two most selfless people I know, and such a wonderful and pure example of love.
