If we’re lucky, we fall in love many times in our life … with friends and family, our children, a first car, pets and so much more. The residents of The Lodge at BridgeMill were asked to tell about a love in their life that stood the test of time. Here are a few of their answers.
We dated in high school and fell in love. My parents didn’t approve so we eloped and sent them a telegraph. We’ve been married for 62 years now. Rita R.
We met at work, became friends and dated for almost two years, then, on a Saturday in April of 1958, we were at a drive-in restaurant and Mack looked at me and asked, “Millie, when would you like to get married?” I looked at my watch, looked at Mack and replied, “Well, I guess it’s too late today, how about next Saturday?” Mack chuckled and said, “I kind of thought you’d say that, let’s do.” We were married in Folly Beach, SC the following week and were husband and wife for over 50 years. (Millie’s eyes still light up when she speaks of Mack!) Millie M.
I met my love on his first day at The Lodge. He was in the dining room by himself, and I wanted to make him feel welcome. We talked for hours and found we had a lot in common. I fell in love that very day! Margaret H.
At 10 years old, I fell in love when my Mom brought home my baby brother. Susan M.
