It’s a beautiful thing seeing the never-ending love between an elderly married couple. Whenever we see elders holding hands or opening the door for one another, it touches us. On May 20th, Jim Russell and his wife Elinor celebrate their anniversary. This year was quite different since Elinor was hospitalized for their 57th anniversary.
This made Jim want to make it a very special anniversary for his wife. He dressed up in a suit and bowtie and took flowers and chocolates to his beloved wife. ABC News reported that they don’t usually make a big deal about their anniversaries, but Jim wanted to make this one special since his wife was hospitalized.
“We’ve known each other all our lives,” said Jim of his wife. “I’ve known her since she was in pigtails.” The two have been together ever since Jim came back from WWII. The picture below was captured by their granddaughter. She posted it on twitter and it has gone viral since.
This goes to show that true love does exist and that even the smallest things can make someone truly happy.
