    Love Stories: In Sickness and in Health, Love Never Fails

    A love story of 40 years, this couple has shared an incredible journey.


Love is a powerful thing—bringing two young people together with one look, and then decades later, proving to be a binding force that prevails in sickness and in health. This is the love of Annette and her husband of over 40 years. She was only 15 and he was only 18 when they met, and it was love at first sight. The dates surrounding their relationship are very significant to them. They met June 17, 1975, and began dating July 15, 1975. Years later, their oldest son was born on the 17th of June and their youngest was born on the 15th of July, the timing of which Annette believes was meant to be. Over the years, their love has grown. They have continued living life together and loving each other dearly despite Annette’s husband having suffered two major strokes. He’s her best friend, Annette says, and she says she’ll take care of him as long as they both shall live.
