Whether married or not, with grandparents or not, this touching response to true love–and the loss of it–could put a lump in anyone’s throat.
Alfred and Sylvia Paley have been happily married for 67 years, but now, at age 89, Alfred has begun to feel the effects of Alzheimer’s.
“Sometimes, I don’t understand what’s going on around me,” Alfred laments in the video above.
Their grandson Sam Maller, a journalism student at Syracuse University, wanted to preserve the memories of his grandparents’ deep and long marriage.
In a serenely beautiful series of interviews, photos, and clips, Sam has captured the essence of Alfred and Sylvia to serve as a reminder during memory loss, and to share as a lesson in love with the rest of the world.
