Talk about true love. Two high school sweethearts have been married for 63 years and plan to renew their vows after the 82 year-old husband dropped to a knee to re-propose.
Married in 1956, Karl and Donna Schwarz have been together through very rough times. Donna suffered multiple health issues “from open heart surgery to strokes and a brain bleed, the 85-year-old has seen her fair share of struggles, all within the course of one year,” according to Liftable.
Their granddaughter Christina Von Schwarz began documenting the elderly couples relationship, posting updates on Twitter that quickly went viral.
According to WFAA, “Karl promised Donna that if she made it through her heart surgery, he would get her a new engagement ring,” and that’s exactly what he did. Von Schwarz helped her grandpa pull off a huge surprise for her grandma.
“She definitely didn’t forget about that ring,” Von Schwarz said. So, the couple headed to JC Penny after she recovered from surgery and Donna was able to pick out the engagement ring she wanted. Right there in JC Penny, Karl hit his knee and asked Donna to marry him again, after being together for 63 years.

Karl told WFAA, “It was great because it’s a gal that I’ve loved all of my life. It was very easy. You know we’ve been together so long that we can’t stay apart really.” Donna said that she loved her new ring, “It’s really beautiful,” she said with a laugh “It’s gorgeous.”
This sweet story is a testament that true love never fades.
California’s Santa Clara County, Reportedly the Last Place in America to Prohibit Indoor Worship, Finally Lifts Ban Following Supreme Court Order
Santa Clara County is home to Silicon Valley.
The Supreme Court issued an order on Friday that required California’s Santa Clara County to lift its prohibition on indoor religious services.
Santa Clara County is home to Silicon Valley and the city of San Jose. It may have been the last place in the United States to maintain its indoor worship ban prior to the Supreme Court order, which came almost a full year after the in-earnest beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in America.
Bishop Oscar Cantu of San Jose said in a Friday night statement that “I join all Catholics and people of faith in Santa Clara County in expressing our satisfaction in tonight’s U.S. Supreme Court decision rejecting Santa Clara County’s ban on indoor worship services. Santa Clara was the only county in the country to continue such a ban. Banning indoor worship and yet allowing people to gather at airports, personal services establishments, and retail shopping is unconstitutional—and the Supreme Court has said so several times.”
Religious services in Santa Clara County, however, cannot take place at more than 20 percent capacity and without strict mask, social distancing, and sanitization protocols.
After hearing the South Bay United Pentecostal Church v. Newsom case, SCOTUS ruled on February 5 in favor of the former and effectively mandated that the state of California lift its ban on indoor religious services. Santa Clara County tried to maintain that the ruling didn’t apply to them because their county directives did not specifically target religious worship, but the court is evidently not buying that explanation given Friday’s order.
The decision back in 2020 to deem religious services “non-essential” was disastrous and evil from the beginning. Glad the Supreme Court has been doing its part to rectify that injustice.
