Celebrating Lennie & Pearl

Lennie Gerber and Pearl Berlin met and fell in love nearly half a century ago. They were legally married in Maine in 2013, but their marriage was not recognized in their home state of North Carolina until 2014. #LoveWins

    Beautiful way to think and live.

    It will get there but it is taking too long.  I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and we have had equal marriage since 2005 and my husband and I married in 2006 to celebrate our 30th anniversary and we have friends here who have been together for 63 years.  It was wonderful to see and hear this story of this couple who made their lives the way they wanted to and love each other no matter what, Congratulations!! Richard Rutherford
