Harold and Judy S.:Harold and Judy have been married for 22 years. Judy was living in Ohio with her family and went to Florida to visit her daughter when she ran into Harold. She says she tore up her ticket back to Ohio and stayed in Florida with Harold. They reminisced about their wedding day and said they got married in a big church in Orlando, Florida on Easter Sunday and all of their children were there to watch. They said that one of their favorite things to do together was play board games.
