These wonderful lovebirds, Rosie and Dale, spent Happy Hour together on the patio! Rosie lives at Dove Healthcare - Spooner and Dale lives at Dove Healthcare - Spooner Assisted Living.

When asked for words of advice to stay in love and be happily married, Rosie said, "Let each other do their thing, be in a good mood, and be loving to each other."

We love seeing Rosie and Dale spend quality time together whenever possible!
