Daily Dose of Adorable: Real Life 'The Notebook' Couple

Posted by Alexandra C. | Friday March 8, 201312 comments

We've all seen, loved and bawled our eyes out over The Notebook. And in case you haven't or need a refresher, or perhaps you just need a bit of Gosling injected into your day, here's a quick clip: 

Sparks notes version: After a long love affair, the couple grows old together and eventually Rachel McAdam's character develops dementia. Ryan Gosling's character is completely devoted to her and visits her every day. He reads her their story as a couple just so she can have a few moments of lucidity.

Now, cue the tears...

Today's Daily Dose of Adorable is about the sweetest 'real life' The Notebook couple: Jack Potter, 91, and his wife Phyllis, 93. 

Phyllis has dementia and Jack visits her everyday to read from a journal where he documented their inside jokes, life events and stories. 

Jack and Phyllis met at an army dance. On October 4th, he wrote in his journal that he had danced with a very nice girl and that he hoped he would see her again. Sixteen months later, they were married and they recently celebrated their 70th anniversary. 

If that isn't love, I don't know what is!

So sweet (:
The notebook was such a tear fest for me, since aside from the reading my grandparents are going through the same thing
It's nice to see people with such devotion

How wonderful is this! I love it and wish more couples would take note. It would be cool if a book was wrote using his journal of love.
