Never marry the one you can live with, marry the one you cannot live without.~unknown Dr. Joan Chadbourne’s story proves that we are never too old to fall in love. Cupid shot her and her future husband Chad through the heart in a coffee shop. Joan was 72, and Chad was 69 years young. Love is not only blind; it cannot count.
