"This is true Love. Sent to WWII only months after getting married,
separated for 40 months, wounded in Iwo Jima, married for 71 years. 15 children. 49 grandchildren. 32 great-grandchilren. Ruth Todd kisses her "lovey" goodbye. RIP William Todd. Apocs
"I am a granddaughter of these two beautiful individuals.
I thought I would share this photo that displays the Marines in the background as my grandma, Ruth, kisses her "lovey" goodbye. My grandpa was the perfect example of what it means to be a man. Our family thanks you for the outpouring of love! I also visited with my grandmother this afternoon and was reading her some of the wonderful comments that were being said. She was overjoyed, though she really doesn't understand "all that internet stuff"! - - Reddit
"Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom."
