Hubby Keeps Up Valentine’s Tradition For 40 Years For Wife With Dementia
Every year since they met back in 1979, Ron Kramer has been keeping their Valentine’s tradition going for his wife, Donna. She was diagnosed with dementia a few years ago, but he still refills the same heart-shaped box with her favorite chocolates every year.
Ron has been recreating the couple’s first Valentine’s Day together for almost 40 years now, buying Donna’s beloved dark chocolate cremes from Buffett’s Candies, a gourmet candy shop in their hometown of Albuquerque, to put back in that same box he gave her in 1979. The chocolates used to cost $13, but today it’s $41 to fill his Valentine box, but he doesn’t mind a bit.
He knows her dementia will eventually take away her memory of who he is, so he treasures getting to spoil her now. And Donna doesn’t remember everything, but she knows she’s lucky to have Ron. "That's why I'm going to keep him. He's a keeper," she said. "I married him years ago, and I love him as much today as I did then."

Georgia Cop Goes Above And Beyond To Help Family
While patrolling a Georgia neighborhood last month during the freezing winter weather, Sergeant Kasey Suddath with the Savannah Police Department spotted three young girls walking to school in clothes that were too small and not weather appropriate. So she found out where they lived and got to know their story, and now she’s committed to helping their family.
The girls are living with their 17-year-old sister and grandmother, who’s dealing with her own health issues. Their home had no hot water, heat, or a stove for a long time, so Sgt. Suddath stepped up to help provide basic needs that were missing. She’s donated clothes to the girls, given the grandma a new cane, and got a local plumber to donate and install a water heater.
Sgt. Suddath says this is just the beginning of a long friendship with this family. “I kind of got into this … to make a difference to at least one person. That’s all I can do,” she explains. “My whole career is just to make a difference to one person, a genuine difference, I know that’s my purpose.”
