Making Connections

Love at first sight has blossomed for 55 years.

ZVI 011ie Posner and Harold Adler glanced
at each other at a wedding reception
about 56 years ago but didn't talk to
each other — at the time.
Then they met again that summer at a South
Haven vacation spot through one of Harold's
One of Mollies frie4ds then tried to fix her up
with someone Mollie thought would be Harold.
Mollie and her "someone else" wound up that
night at Adler's cousin's apartment. And Harold
stopped by.
"That's the one I wanted to date," Mollie
Mollie, then 19, and Harold, then 21, married a
year later, on Jan. 22, 1950.
Now, 55 years later, they talk about their

again at the apartment of her cousin, Monte
Markowitz, I took a better look. Her hair was dif-
ferent, but she looked pretty good."
Harold, retired as an industrial and commercial
painting contractor, and Mollie both grew up on
Detroit's west side and graduated from Central
High School.
They say there is a lot of give and take in their
marriage, and they have the ability to see each
other's point view. They also share interests and
give each other respect.
'And don't stay mad for too long," Mollie said.
"Marriage is a commitment we made. We're there
for each other in sickness and good health. We sup-
port each other."
The health reference reminds Harold that "I
wouldn't be alive now if it weren't for Mollie." Six
years ago, he was hospitalized for emphysema for
two months, including 5 1 /2 weeks in an intensive
care unit. She was with him constantly.
