Merle + Stella

Almost 79 years married.

We could tell you about their first dance, or we could tell you about how there was an objection to them getting married… But, instead, we’re going to show you how their love survives. How it is difficult to age, but after 80 years and is stronger than ever.

Produced by Pablo Korona
Drone by FlyGuy Films

Music: Zach Staas, Daniel Pingrey and Jason Kaye of the inimitable SFC.
