Luther Younger is a 99-year-old Korean War veteran and has been married to his wife Waverlee for 55-years. The real-life prince charming walks six miles through Rochester, New York every single day, regardless of the weather, to visit his wife who is staying in the hospital. He renews our faith in love.
Waverlee was diagnosed with a brain tumor a decade ago and has been admitted routinely to the hospital since then. Luther can’t spend a single day without seeing her, so walks from his home to her bedside and kiss her to make her feel better. He could easily take the bus or get a ride from his daughter Lutheta but chooses to walk in the name of love.
Sometimes, Luther is so excited to see Waverlee, so he runs a portion of the 3 miles to get there, but walks back slowly at the end of the day. He doesn’t want to miss a moment to be with his wife at her bedside and says that he still makes his wife’s eyes flutter with his kiss.
