Nups Tale Bites Back

A San Antonio reporter named J. Michael Parker ran a front page story which wondered, “Can religious institutions save marriage”. Marriage, of course, is “under siege” by all sorts of terrible things. In an effort to revive hope for the crumbling tradition, Parker highlighted an elderly couple, Nell and Wallace Crain. The Crains had, according to the Parker, been together for 67 years. And they were. Until they died – a little factoid Parker neglected to include. He didn’t think it was important because the now deceased couple were “sweet”. It’s worth mentioning that Nell and Wallace died within two weeks of one another. Precious!
