“Every morning he looks over and says, ‘I’m so blessed. I’ve got the most beautiful girl in all the world.’ And he goes on and on,’” Phyllis said. “Then I say how I’m so lucky and blessed. I mean, we sweet talk each other all the time.”
They continue to hold hands every time they’re in the car. It’s a tradition they’ve had since their dating years.
“It makes me know that he still cares,” Phyllis said. “Even now when I’m old and wrinkled and not as pretty as a young 19-year-old.”
Over the years they say their love has grown stronger and richer.
“He is very kind and very loving,” Phyllis said. “He builds me up and tells me good things all the time. So naturally, I have to love him and I do love him.”
George and Phyllis said that in a marriage, it’s important to always look for the good.
“The bad is always gonna be there,” George said. “If you look for the good, you’ll see the good. Take advantage of all the good things and treasure them.”
“This is a lifetime thing,” Phyllis said. “Make it happy. Make the best of it.”
Now that the Reprogles are older, they say that they see the value and purpose of each day.
“Today it’s just she and I, and we have each other and we enjoy each other,” George said.
The couple doesn’t know what they would do without each other and have had conversations about what they’d do if one of them was gone.
“God has to some way, somehow, take us out of life together,” Phyllis said.
“When we got married, we were two people and we were made into one,” George said. “We’ve been one ever since. You can’t separate one.”
