Lafser_E_Bosstick_20150331_0033Chuck and Betty Ann Bosstick lay in bed and tell each other how much they love one another. Betty Ann has alzheimer’s, so she is in bed basically all day every day while Chuck will keep her company and hold her hand. “She’s my life. She’s my life. Without her, I don’t want to live, but as long as she’s alive, I want to be alive with her,” said Chuck. The couple have know each other since they were ten years old and have been married for almost 68 years. 1938 was their first date and first kiss. “[Marrying him] was the best thing I ever did,” said Betty Ann.
