Massachusetts Man Grants Wife's Wish After 65 Years of Marriage

Massachusetts 97-year-old Man engagement ring

97-year-old Everett "Pops" Potterman had one last wish: to finally give his wife Betty of 65 years an engagement ring.

WAYLAND, Mass.-- A 97-year-old man had one last wish: to finally give his wife an engagement ring.

A few weeks ago, Everett "Pops" Potter enrolled in a hospice program at the Wayland Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, where he and his wife of 65 years, Betty, live.

Pops' health is failing and doctors do not give him much time. But there is one thing he always wished he had done, MyFoxBoston reports. 

Pops and Betty renewed their vows in Milford, N.H. -- where they were wed -- and Pops presented her with a diamond wedding ring.

"I never gave her one,’" Pops said. "I was saving money.’"

Life Choice Hospice offers patients a final wish. The center and the hospice purchased a .40-carat solitaire with 14-carat yellow gold mounting for him.
