Unconditional love is a blessing for everyone who wants to live happily. Some bonds and affairs go away after a particular time, but if you meet your soul mate with unconditional love, they are always being with you and never leaving you. I’m going to tell you about a kind of story.
Frankie King married Royce, in 1944 and they were high school lovers. Unfortunately, they couldn’t get a wedding dress and a photographer at that time. Because Royce had only a two-day leave before rushing off overseas for his military deployment, they had not enough time to plan their wedding.
According to their daughter, Sue Bilodeau Royce was stationed as a lieutenant in the Air Force, and he just got his pilot wings. Frankie and Royce had been engaged for about six months; therefore, they decided to have a wedding before he was deployed overseas. From that time, they have been living together for over seventy years with love.
Now Frankie is 97 years old, and Royce is 98 years, and they are still living in Oelwein and are being taken care of by a hospice nurse, working for St. Croix Hospice. They have celebrated their 77th wedding anniversary on September 16. They were reminded that they had missed a photographer and wedding gown on their wedding day. However, this time, the St. Croix Hospice staff members recreated their day in a beautiful way. Frankie was dressed in a beautiful wedding gown, and Royce donned on his Air Force uniform. It was the very same one he wore when he married his wife seven decades back.
The couple has celebrated it happily. ‘Should I wear my glasses or not? I didn’t have glasses that day.’ Royce has asked her daughter. She has told her to wear it. Royce wore her glasses on that day.
When Royce was waiting for his bride, someone asked that are you ready to see your bride. . “He had just the biggest smile the rest of the day. It was amazing.” Sue expressed Royce’s feeling that way.
Actually, it was a heart-touching story. One day Both Frankie and Royce have to leave this world. But I’m sure they will live happily with love until they say goodbye to each other.
“Something to take away [from this story] would be, they’ve been through a lot—as anybody does—year after year. And through struggles and good times, they’ve managed to find a way to put their love and devotion above everything else to make it work.” Sue told CBS News while she was giving her gratitude to Staff members at the hospice for recreating this event.
