Clarence and Carolyn dined at Smith’s Restaurant for the last 13 years of her life.
“Ain't nobody loved one another more than me and my wife loved one another,” Clarence Purvis said. “I wanted what she wanted and she wanted what I wanted."
Although his wife is gone, Clarence Purvis still bonds with her at lunchtime.
“He's a part of this restaurant,” Joyce James, the restaurant’s owner, told WTOC. “I asked my husband, I said, ‘You know, if something happened to me, will you put my picture on the table?’ He said, ‘I don't think so, dear.’ He said, ‘I love you but, that might be a little much.’”
Purvis visits the Glennville Cemetery “at least four times a day” to visit his wife, WTOC reported.
“I imagine I come 125 times a month,” he told WTOC. “I love her that much. And miss her that much. And think she would with me."
