Strictly for the lovers
I-Reports are like a box of chocolates, you… well you know how it goes. So this Valentine’s Day, when we asked I-Reporters to share stories of lifelong love, we knew what we wanted –- the question was -- would we get it?

Luckily, Jerri Wenzel, along with her aunt Peggy Sampson, answered the call. They opened up the Sampson family photo album and shared the lifelong love story of Jerri's dear grandparents, Eunice and Everett “Sam” Sampson, who have been married for more than 61 years.

We were so touched by the photos -- we asked Eunice and Sam to share their secrets to staying in love all these years. You can hear their love story on this slide show. It's enough to melt your heart this Valentine’s Day.

Go love. Go I-Reports.
May God Bless you and your family!! Stories like this can give us all hope. My husband and I have been together for 13 years, and I know we will make it another 50! You are a Inspiration! Wonderful, Wonderful love story!!
