  • Valentine’s Day is Sunday, and lovers all over the globe are gearing up in many different ways – some traditional, and some not so much.

    Preparing for a perfect Valentine’s Day means something different to everyone, but a common theme in Shelbyville seems to be anything to do with food.

    “I’m hoping we can go to the Bell House for dinner,” said Mary Jo Netherton. “I will plant that suggestion in my husband’s head.”

  • “We were going to the prom, and she had on this pretty dress, and that was the night I knew she was the one,” said Paul Morris, the memory of that moment still alive in his eyes as he smiled at his wife, Ethel. 

    Paul Morris celebrated his 80th birthday last week; his wife is 76. Outwardly, they look very different from a photo taken 60 years ago that graces their room at Amber Oaks Assisted Living Community.

    But their love is still as strong as ever.

  • When Ted Lewis Igleheart and Elizabeth “Libby” Ann Craig met in college both were heavily involved with others, but soon found their way together.

    MOPS meeting

  • In September 1995 my son Reggie took his mother Susanne, then 80, on a trip to France, including a visit to the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes, near the border between France and Spain.

    She had first visited the shrine with her father in 1926 when she was eleven. Susanne described her impressions:

    I touched Reggie’s cheek and he touched my cheek. And there was an atmosphere of prayer, no giggling, no laughing or anything. Just a very comfortable place to be because everybody else was doing the same thing. And it was very emotional.
