Aww, this is sooo sweet. Dana Jackson, 100 years young, got married to Bill Strauss, 87, who just happens to be her best friend too. The couple first met a while back at their health care centre.
They got married on Dana’s 100th birthday.
At Dana’s hen party, one of the women gave her perfume …and a garter for her wedding night!
Dana looked gorgeous in her wedding gown and Bill looked rather dapper in his suit. He’s a bit of a charmer too. Listen to what he says to one of the ladies!
Aww, and the picture of the baby sitting on Dana’s wedding dress is cute.
“It’s not what you got, it’s what you make out of a marriage”, Dana believes.
Bill, who is blind, said “When she comes down the aisle, all I can do is imagine it because I won’t be able to even see her ‘til she’s just a couple feet away”.
Did you notice they kissed before the preacher said “you may kiss the bride”?
“I said you look beautiful”, Dana says to Bill. “Well thank you”, Bill replies. “You’re the first one that told me that”.
Not only is it an achievement to make it to 100 or even 87, but to have the pizzazz to still live it well, to live it insatiably, is beyond admirable. A lot of people would have given up on love at 50, let alone 60. Dana and Bill prove that life is life until your last breath; in the meantime, why waste it???
