58 Years of Love

Today would have been the 58th wedding anniversary of Joe Dimaggio and Marilyn Monroe. Even though their marriage was her shortest, it was her best. They didn’t’ work out because life got in the way, but they had a love like no other. Even after their marriage Joe had the greatest respect and love for Marilyn. They remained best friends for the rest of her life. After her death he claimed her body, arranged the funeral services, and sent flowers to her grave every week for 20 years. On his death bed his last words were “I finally get to see Marilyn.”

I think he was the luckiest guy to have ever lived. Happy anniversary to a couple who never died.
