Love late in life

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - A Sioux Falls couple is proving it’s never too late to find someone special. They are an example of what love, respect and friendship bring to a marriage. But for one of them, the clock is ticking. Both widowed, Orv and Kay Nettifee first met 9 years ago when a friend at church played matchmaker.

On the 14th of every month, they celebrate their love. After trying many restaurants, Orv and Kay found their spot at Botski’s, a neighborhood bar and grill.

“We both know, and I do, that I’m not going to live forever and a day. But on the other hand, we’ve got all this memory already, memory bank if you will, we have all of this with us,” Orv said, who is receiving hospice care at Good Samaritan Society – Sioux Falls Village.

“Enjoy every moment of life together, because we never know from one minute to the next what we have or what is coming our way,” Kay said.
