During Barbara’s funeral, Jeb, the former governor of Florida, moved his father by reading an old love letter that his dad wrote to his mother after his term as commander in chief.
“Our family has had a front row seat for the most amazing love stories,” Jeb said from the pulpit of the church. “Through a multitude of moves … their love was a constant in our lives.”
He continued, “My dad is a phenomenal letter writer, and he would write mom on their wedding anniversaries, which totaled an amazing 73 years. Here’s one of them written on January 6th, 1994.”
“Will you marry me?” Jeb read the words his father had written. “Oops, I forgot, we did that 49 years ago. I was very happy on that day in 1945, but I’m even happier today.”
