Karl and Donna have been married for 63 years now, and their relationship has seen a lot: four kids, nine grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren.
Last year, Donna had open heart surgery and was in the hospital for a good portion of 2018. She suffered a seizure and a stroke, and the recovery after each incident was pretty brutal. Karl never left her side, though. He slept in a chair by her bed in the rehab center she was admitted to. Every night, he stayed there, until she was strong enough to go back home. He told her while she was recovering that when she was stronger, he’d take her to the store and get her a brand new engagement ring.
That finally happened earlier this month! Karl and Donna and their whole family went to the store, she picked out a ring from her wheelchair, and once Karl purchased it, right there in the store, he dropped to one knee and proposed to his love again. One of her grandkids filmed it and posted it to Twitter, and you can see that she is just as giddy as she was the first time he proposed.
They’ve since renewed their vows, and they’re praying for many more years together.
