Article excerpt

love storyPatrick and Joyce Bedner, 76 and 77 respectively, talk about their marriage of 54 years beside their wedding photo Wednesday at Country Meadows Retirement Community in Bridgeville. The two live in separate buildings so each can receive specialty care -Mrs. Bedner for Alzheimer's disease and Mr. Bedner for physical therapy. To describe his love for his wife, Mr. Bedner told a story of a man whose doctor asked him why he insisted on regularly visiting his wife with Alzheimer's. "She may not remember, but I remember, that's how I feel," said Mr. Bedner. "To me love means I'll always be here to take care of you and I sincerely love you," he said. Mrs. Bedner replied, "I feel the same way about you, too."
