It’s Time To Cry: Man Publishes Sweet Love Letter To His Wife In The Local Paper For 61st Anniversary




Take notes, because this is how romance is done.

After 61 years of marriage, Bob Phillips admitted to his wife Gail that he’d been looking at other women the entire time they’d been married. But Bob wasn’t ogling them or admiring their beauty. He was looking in every Sunday paper to try and find a bride who could even come close to being as “lovely” as his own bride, many years ago. He always came up empty-handed. Keep reading »

It’s Time To Cry: This 7-Year-Old Raised $54,000 For His Best Friend’s Surgery

It's Time To Cry: This 7-Year-Old Raised $54,000 For His Best Friend's Surgery

Brayden Grozdanic, a seven-year-old little boy from Vancouver, Canada, has cerebral palsy. He struggles to walk with the help of braces and faces painful physiotherapy every day. In Canada, Brayden can undergo surgery that would allow him to walk without the braces, but a much less invasive procedure is offered in New Jersey for the hefty price of $20,000.

His buddy Quinn, who is also seven, hated watching his friend suffer and wished he could help. He told CTV Vancouver News:

“After I watched one of (Brayden’s) physiotherapy things, and I saw how hard it was for him, I asked my mommy and daddy if I could build a lemonade stand to raise money.”

Interspecies love stories always make me squee, but the friendship between Mr. G, a goat, and Jellybean, a burro, made me SQUOB. (Squobbing, a word I just made up, is when you are squeeing and sobbing at the same time because something is equal parts adorable and heartwrenching.) Mr. G and Jellybean were both rescued from a hoarder’s home earlier this year and were taken to live in separate animal sanctuaries, despite having spent their whole lives in each other’s company. Mr. G was so depressed about being away from his ride-or-die bestie that he was refusing to leave his stall or eat, spending his time writing bad poetry and listening to Daughtry. (I’m kidding about those last two, although Daughtry does provide the background music to this video.) It was clear these two soulmates needed to be together, so Jellybean was brought to live with Mr. G at Animal Place in Grass Valley, California. The minute Mr. G heard Jellybean arrive, he started to perk up and within minutes of being reunited, Mr. G was back to his usual goat self. SQUOB!!! [Huffington Post]

It’s Time To Cry: Family Surprises Terminally Ill Mom With A Flash Mob Of Love

Grab a Kleenex now.

Two years ago, Amy Wagner was diagnosed with stage 3C ovarian cancer. After undergoing major surgery and painful chemotherapy treatments, Amy and her family got the worst news one year later: the cancer was back, and this time the diagnosis was terminal. Amy is determined to make the most of the time she has left. To help boost her spirits and show her that she is surrounded by love, her daughter Lauren brought together 50 of Amy’s closest friends to perform a surprise dance for her 56th birthday. “We recorded it so that she could re-watch it in times of struggle,” says Lauren, “and so that the 50 of us who participated could watch her beautiful reactions once she’s no longer with us.” This video is a perfect illustration of Amy’s motto: “dum vivimus, vivamus,” which translates to “While we live, let us live.” And seriously, grab a kleenex before you push play. You’re going to need it. [Today]

I want to think 19-year-old Austin Dennison, a church-going Eagle Scout who plays football, baseball, and basketball and performs in the school band, is a little goody-two-shoes. But I just can’t, because Austin is adorable. He called up his great-grandma “DD” — Delores Dennison — and asked her to be his prom date. Delores is 89 years old, a widower and suffers from heart trouble. She never attended her prom back in the 1930s, because she didn’t have enough money. So her great-grandson in Rockford, Ohio, called her up and invited her to be his senior prom date at Parkway High School. Keep reading »

It's Time To Cry: This Couple Of 70 Years Passed Away Within 15 Hours Of Each Other

After 70 years of marriage, an Ohio couple passed away within 15 hours of one another other this weekend, at the ages of 91 and 92. Helen and Kenneth Felumlee, who had eight children and many more grandkids, were introduced as teenagers by Kenneth’s ex-girlfriend, who was a friend of Helen’s. After three years of dating, they eloped in 1944 with barely enough money in their pockets to pay the $2 courthouse fee. For weeks afterward, they lived in separate homes because they were so nervous about telling their parents that they’d married. Keep reading »
