Long lasting love.

I was sitting on a bench waiting for my ride yesterday and from where I was sitting I could see the DQ parking lot. I watched a very old couple, probably mid eighties, walk out of the building and into the parking lot. The woman was exceptionally slow and the man was about ten steps behind her. Then I watched him pick up his pace and speed walk past her. I thought to myself, wow, how rude. He won't even wait to walk with his slow wife! But as I kept watching I realized what he was doing. He walked past her so he could beet her to the car to open the door for her. He opened it and then stood there till she got in and then he closed it for her. (= After probably 60 years of marriage and he still opens the door for her. I think that is the most precious thing I've ever seen.
