Love Story

I love happy endings :) Here is part of a story about a couple in Monroe, married for 50 + years.... CONGRATS TO THEM!!

After their spouses died at early ages, Ken and Myrtle Stoll were not thinking about getting back into the dating scene. At the time, Mrs. Stoll was in her early 30s and Mr. Stoll was in his early 40s; both had children to raise as single parents. It took a dare for Mr. Stoll to approach his future wife. "His neighbor dared him to call me. She asked him why he hadn't asked me out yet," recalled Mrs. Stoll from the couple's Monroe home. He took the dare, and it paid off. About a year after their first date, the couple married on June 15, 1957, at Grace Lutheran Church. "It's our second time around. I didn't think we would make it to 50 years since it's a second marriage for the both of us," Mr. Stoll said. Mrs. Stoll said God blessed them by doubling what she asked Him.
