"Finding the couple". You guys know me. I REALLY REALLY hate...

October 25, 2017 02:20PM
The fact that the WWII generation is almost GONE! My past 21 years with JFRD, I have had the honor to go into homes of elderly folks from that generation. I have LOVED to look at the photos on the walls and hear their stories. Not just the men but ladies too. My favorite couple was a VERY elderly couple we went to about 17 years ago. They barely got around but cracked us up with their wit and sarcastic remarks at each other. I looked at those fading people and then on their wall was a picture of them taken in 1938. He was a Naval Officer who looked JUST LIKE Clark Gable and she had a BEAUTIFUL Rita Heyworth look. We were there to only help the lady get her Husband off the floor. I recall walking away from their house smiling but almost misty eyed. (Proud AND sad) Never saw them again. I'm QUITE certain both have long since passed away.
