This older couple could teach the young ones a thing or two. After being married for 66 years, they still have eyes only for each other.
When James Pinegar, 86, contracted a serious blood infection, he thought his days were numbered. Because his wife, Colleen, stayed constantly by his bedside, James wanted to share how he felt about her, in a song. “This is special to me,” he whispered to his beloved. He began crooning the old ballad … “You are My Sunshine,” with Colleen joining in their favorite song.
The love between them is tangible, as they hummed in perfect harmony. Their video was been viewed on YouTube about 2 million times.
“My dad is very sentimental and having gotten this blood infection felt his life was short, and that song is their theme song. I had my son put it on (YouTube) so family and friends could see his great love for my mom,” their daughter told TODAY.
People love a happily ever after, and fortunately, James’s health did improve afterward. Thank goodness.
