Story: They met 27 years ago at a dance hall

Marisa Holland remembers the first time she saw Jack Melton. “He was the most handsome guy I had ever met.”

That was 27 years ago.

“And he still is,” she smiled.

The couple met in Tulsa, Oklahoma. “We were at The Caravan, a country/western dance hall.”

Marisa said she was the first one to express interest in the couple “being a couple” and she doesn’t remember “who said ‘I love you first.’”

Parents and grandparents, the couple enjoys family time. When asked who the most patient was in their relationship, Marisa said, “Jack.”

Jack also got the nod for being the most sensitive and the funniest.

Marisa laughed, and said she is the loudest of the two.

Jack, she said, with a smile, is the most stubborn and falls asleep better, which she said makes him also “the better morning person.”

In deciding which of the two is the best cook, Marisa said, “Jack is.”

“I am the best driver though,” she concluded.

Happy Valentine’s Day to Marisa and Jack!
