Ninety three-year-old Clarence Purvis is living proof of true love. Even though his wife Carolyn already passed away on November 22, 2013, he still remained faithful and devoted to her.
They met in 1948 when Carolyn was 16 years old. She was a Glenville High School senior, Clarence is already 24 years old. From there, it was a love like no other, they spent over 63 years together.
“Ain’t nobody loved one another more than me and my wife loved one another, I wanted what she wanted and she wanted what I wanted,” Clarence told NBC 12.
Though Carolyn is no longer with Clarence physically, you would often see him eating at Smith’s Restaurant, in South Georgia. It was their favorite place. He always places a picture of his beloved wife next to him while he eats his food.
He also visits her wife’s grave over 125 times per month, it just goes to show that Clarence can’t imagine life without her. Someone from NBC asked her why she visits her grave so much, Clarence just answered: “I love her that much.”
Some people said that if he gets a girlfriend, it would ease his loneliness but he just smiles and answered: “I could ask her, could I get me a girlfriend? You know what she’d say? If you want to. That’s how we operated.”
