“Henry (Hank) Sanders & Faya Rose Toure – Selma, Alabama Married 48 Years – Anniversary: January 23, 1970”
“There is a freedom in our marriage for each of us to pursue our own mission.” — Hank
“Strong marriages are based on strong relationships, and they have to be deeply rooted in something that is concrete, not just infatuations and sexual desires. Our marriage is successful because we started our relationship with a deep friendship that was based on respect and love for each other as human beings. On the other side of that, we are very different people, but we have the same vision, the same goals, and the same mission. We have different ways of reaching that mission, but we each have respect for our differences.”
