Luther Younger loves his wife

Luther Younger would like to be younger, but he can't. He's 98 years old, and the best thing that ever happened to him was marrying Waverlee over 50 years ago. Since she's paralyzed and has been hospitalized, he insists on walking six miles each way to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, New York, every day to be with her.

His daughter Lutheta offers to give him a ride, but he's often too impatient to wait around. Why is he glad to walk 12 miles a day rain or shine, to see Waverlee? For him the answer is obvious. "She's the best cup of tea I ever had. I ain't nothing without her."
