Elderly romance moves at slower pace for Rock Hill retirees
For one couple, it started when the two were seated next to one another during an ordinary weeknight dinner.
ROCK HILL, S.C. -- Recent Newlyweds Bob and Dianne Wilusz weren't expecting to get married when they moved into the ACTS Retirement-Life Community in Rock Hill, but love is a curious thing.
It started when the two were seated next to one another during an ordinary weeknight dinner.
We went to dinner with a group of people, Bob Wilusz said.
Dianne Wilusz added, He invited me to play pool. They were going to play pool after dinner.
I said if you want to come and watch us, come down. I didn't figure she would but she did, Bob said.
Soon the two were going together on volunteer music outings. Bob has been playing the accordion since he was 10 years old.
Bob said the romance developed slowly, but soon the two knew that marriage was in the next verse. And it just happened, you know?
Before they say I do, they took time to see if this was right for the both of them. They share the same faith, they are both responsible with finances, their families gave their support, they were out of reasons not too.
It takes a lot of serious thought, Dianne said.
They now share an apartment together and are happy. Their hope for the future is for good health with a lot of laughs along the way.
And it's working, Dianne said smiling.
Bob then adds, It's nice to have somebody to care for, it's just nice to be in the presence of somebody. Somebody who cares.
