We had the pleasure of listening to our resident’s love stories this year as we have in years past. But this year we took a page from the Legacies Project and spent some more time recording a few of these stories in greater detail. We chose three which represent different stages of love that our residents might be experiencing. A spouse of a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease. A widow. And a couple in independent living. Each story is beautiful and endearing and makes us grateful for the love that we’ve been blessed to encounter along the way.
Ruth and Andy have been married for over 70 years. Ruth still giggles when she talks about him. Her advice to young couples is to forgive and listen. They are certainly a shining example of a happy marriage. We’re all nodding and taking notes. Please take a moment and listen to Ruth and Andy’s story below:
