Bob Phillips admits his proposal to wife Gail some 61 years ago was not very romantic.
“I had taken (Gail) home after a date and before she got out of the car, I said ‘Gail will you marry me?’ That was it. How’s that for romantic?” Phillips told WBTV. However, that may have been the only time in the past 61 years that Bob was less than romantic. Every day, the couple showers each other with affection.
“My years with her have been for better or for worse,” Bob told WBTV.
“But worse with her is better than better with anybody else.” On their recent anniversary, Bob decided put his feelings down on paper…and was published in the Charlotte Observer.
“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 a bride as lovely as you are. Been doing that since June 27, 1953…as for the brides he’s looked at for the past 61 years, not one has been as lovely as his.”
“I found two (women) that came close…”referring to their two daughters.
