I Love You, Too

On February 14, 2017, Gastonia Care and Rehabilitation honored several residents and their spouses at a Couples Valentine’s Dinner. In an effort to create for them a Valentine’s Day date night, five of the 15 couples invited were escorted to private tables to enjoy their Valentine’s Day together.

One husband said, “Valentine’s Day was always our ‘big night out.’ We were poor, so we always saved up for a night on the town every Valentine’s Day.” Husbands were able to give a red rose and box of candy to their sweetheart, and enjoy some smiles and reminiscing as they shared memories.

It was a great team effort to bring some smiles and a few smooches for these couples to share and they celebrated their lives together.
