Bill and Dot Meeks recently celebrated their 60th anniversary. They say friendship, compassion and prayer are the secrets to a happy marriage.By JAMIE PATTERSON
The story begins like many early romances in the South.
They were the children of Mississippi farmers who remained close in their tight-knit community. They ran into each other in passing on gravel roads and in the kitchens of family members.
But Bill and Dot Meeks saw something in each other that stood the test of time. They created their own love story that was filled with friendship, compassion and prayer.
It is a story that continues on as they celebrated 60 years of marriage this summer.
