VAN BUREN, AK (KFSM) — Arvel and Gail Ross go to Kopper Kettle Candies in Van Buren, Arkansas every year around Valentine’s Day to fill a box they’ve had for more than 25 years.
“I brought it in here and they asked me how long I’ve had it and I said, I don’t really know. They said ‘we don’t make boxes like this anymore.’ They thought they got antique or unique,” Gail said.
The couple met at Muldrow High School and that’s when they started dating.
Arvel says he knew early on in their relationship that Gail was the person he wanted to spend the rest of his life with.
“That’s a hard question but yeah, she’s the only one I ever dated so, I guess the answer is yes,” Arvel said.
The couple married in December of 1957.
