Description
"In my hometown, this gentleman went and sat everyday with his wife, who suffered from Dementia. She passed away last July.

Paul's words about his wife, Martha:

'We kind of grew up together because our families went to the same church but I didn't really start talking to her until I was in the Navy. We started writing each other when I was stationed at Pearl Harbor. One day a buddy of mine and I were walking around and we came across a woman that was selling engagement ring sets. Well, I had no interest and neither did my buddy because, you know, we had no plans to get married any time soon but that woman talked us into looking at the rings and we ended up buying a set. I held onto mine for a long time while Martha and I kept writing each other until one day I just decided to mail the ring to her. A few days later I called her up and asked her if she got anything in the mail from me and well, the rest is history. It was 57 years last December. I came to sit with her every day and wave at the cars passing by. We've had a lot of adventures together and she loved me through it all.' "
