Rose & Al met on a BLIND DATE on February 23, 1963. Al was in the Air force & just so happened to be home on leave. Their blind date went PRETTY WELL because they went out the next night, and even for lunch the afternoon after that! Al had to leave for North Dakota the next day, where he was stationed. He returned back to Rose in June of 1963, and they were engaged on August 25th, 1963! They were happily married on June 20th, 1964. Since then, they’ve made so many memories together, from Sunday dinner at the house, attending block parties/church picnics & being blessed with 3 sons & daughter in laws. THIS WEEK is their 59th wedding anniversary!!! Unfortunately Al passed in 2015, HOWEVER their story & their love is something to FOREVER celebrate !!
