True love can surpass every test that it is put to, even the test of time, which many other “stronger” things fail at. If you need proof for the statement you just read, take a look at the photos at the link mentioned above. Joe and Wanda met in 1950 and after 2 years of courtship, married each other in 1952 – and have since been together. On their sixty-third marriage anniversary, their granddaughter – a photographer named Shalyn, living in Texas, decided to give them an innovative gift. The web link given here is a collection of the photos taken on the day of their anniversary celebration.
Wanda and Joe have been married for 63 years, and their love is still as strong as ever
They met in 1950 when Joe saw Wanda walking down the street
He stopped his car and asked her for a date. She couldn’t refuse his charm
And nor could she refuse his proposal when he asked her to marry him on December 28, 1950
For their 63rd wedding anniversary, their granddaughter decided to give them their very own photo shoot
The pictures are part of a project called Love, The Nelsons, which Shalyn started to celebrate old love
As part of the photoshoot, Shalyn asked her grandparents to write love letters to each other
“Dearest Wanda,’ wrote Joe. “It’s been a long time since I have written you a letter”
“The years have gone by fast. One morning you just wake up and you are OLD. Anyway, I wouldn’t trade them for all the gold in Alaska”
“We had 3 great kids and lots of fun raising them. Most of the time. I wish that we could bring back some of those days”
“Anyway, I will close this letter to you saying I love you as much today as the day I married you”
“And just think, the license only cost $2.00. The best bargain I ever made”
