Don’t mess with happiness

Jesse W. Crow, 85, right, of DeSoto, and 90-year-old Nadine Phoenix of Oraville, share a Valentine’s Day kiss Tuesday at the Rehab and Care Center of Jackson County in Murphysboro. The two have been dating for the last 17 years and have no interest in getting married, they said. “We don’t want to mess with happiness,” Crow said. “We are extremely happy.” Crow said he comes to visit Phoenix, a temporary resident, everyday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Since Phoenix came to the Rehab and Care Center nearly a month ago, Crow said the doctors and residents have given them the nickname, ‘the Lovebirds.’ “We don’t mind. We’re not shy about it,” Crow said.
