I found a poem that reminded me of Curly and Arliene's love story. Their love was an inspiration, and I will always remember them. They were laid to rest, together, on August 12, 2010. Forever and always.
The question is asked, "Is there anything more beautiful
in life than a boy and a girl clasping hands and pure in
hearts in the path of marriage? Can there be anything
more beautiful than young love?" And the answer is
given. "Yes, there is a more beautiful thing. It is the
spectacle of an old man and an old woman finishing their
journey together on that path. Their hands are gnarled,
but still clasped; their faces are seamed, but still radiant;
their hearts are physcially bowed and tired, but still strong
with love and devotion for on another. Yes, there is a more
beautiful thing than young love. Old love."
