After 40 Years Together, Couple Finally Ties The Knot

Joe Hubbard met Julie Llamas at church when they were just teenagers and then got reacquainted in their 30s. She asked him to her company Christmas party back in 1977 and they dated once or twice a month until their mothers passed away in the ‘90s and that’s when their romance really started heating up.

But after 40 years together, Joe, 75, and Julie, 79, had never gotten married. The Illinois couple were busy with work and caring for family members and while they were close and in love, they were happy with things the way they were. And then halfway through mass on May 15th, Joe turned to Julie and out of the blue asked, “You want to get married?” and she says she laughed and said, “Yeah.”

The longtime couple decided to make it official after all these years, planning a small ceremony, but their friends, family and church community had other ideas. Joe and Julie just said “I do” in front of 200 loved ones who’ve waited a long time for to see this happy ending.

So what made the lifelong bachelor change his mind and pop the question during church that day? “I’m getting old,” Joe says. “And when you start getting old, you realize you’re going to die, and you want to enjoy a little bit of what God gives us to enjoy.”

Firefighter Finishes Yard Work For 90-Year-Old Who Collapsed

After responding to a call to help a 90-year-old man who collapsed while working in his yard, a Plano, Texas firefighter decided to finish the yard work for him. While other firefighters cared for the elderly man inside his home, Rance Pringle tackled the rest of the work in the yard.

The department shared the story on Facebook, giving Pringle credit for his good deed. And the day this happened, it was the hottest day of 2018 so far in North Texas, with temperature soaring to 100-degrees, but Pringle says it only took him about five minutes to complete the yard work.

“Just help someone. If you see someone in need or if they need help if they’re having a bad day, just try to be a bright spot on someone’s day,” Pringle says. “It doesn’t take much effort. It’s pretty easy. I think just the effort alone… makes all the difference in the world.”

Loved Ones Honor Late Teacher’s Request For Backpacks Instead Of Flowers At Funeral

After serving her community as a paraprofessional and elementary school teacher in Forsyth County, Georgia, Tammy Waddell never stopped thinking of students. When she passed away earlier this month after battling cancer, she asked loved ones to bring backpacks filled with school supplies for student in need, instead of flowers.

Nearly 100 teachers served as honorary pallbearers, bringing the backpacks from the chapel to their schools, according to Waddell’s cousin, Dr. Brad Johnson.

“My cousin’s final request at her funeral was backpacks full of supplies for needy students. A teacher to the end,” Johnson captioned his photo on Twitter. “It was heartwarming.
