This Husband's Love Letter To His Wife Of 61 Years Will Melt Your Heart...

Bob and Gail Phillips got married on June 27, 1953.  To celebrate their 61st wedding anniversary, Bob published a love letter to this wife in the Charlotte Observer.

Here’s the full text of the letter:

Dear Gail,

I look at newspaper pictures of new brides every Sunday. I’m searching. I want to see if there is now or ever will be another bride as lovely as you. Been doing that since June 27, 1953. Actually, I already know the answer. There is not - and never will be to me - your equal in loveliness. On our wedding day you were the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. The delightful truth is that you still are. Happy anniversary, sweetheart. You’ve made me and you keep me the happiest and most grateful husband any bride could ever know. I’d gladly welcome another 61 years of marriage with you. Beyond that I pray we will spend eternity together.

All my love, 
Bob
