In March 2011, Forrest Lunsway married his long-time sweetheart, Rose Pollard. They met at a dance in the 1980s – a blind date, if the story is correct. Both had been married before (they were a widow and widower when they met).
They became best friends, and even dated, but Rose didn’t want to remarry – she had loved her husband too much. Forrest persevered, however, and eventually she agreed to marry him.
On his 100th birthday.
After thirty years of friendship and dating (I’m guessing “courtship” is actually a better word) Forrest and Rose Lunsway are finally man and wife. They remain active, feisty, and as devoted to one another as newlyweds should be – even with 190 years of living split between them.
Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Lunsway. I don’t know about anyone else, but your story certainly makes me smile.
