Danny Perasa and his wife, Annie, came to StoryCorps to recount their twenty-seven-year romance. As they remember their life together from their first date to Danny’s final days with terminal cancer, these remarkable Brooklynites not only personify the eloquence, grace, and poetry that can be found in the voices of everyday people when we take the time to listen but also speak about the gift of love and privilege of loving.  And how beautiful, profound and moving simple expressions of love can be – like a love note in the morning, two hands on a shoulder or walking out of the church alone.
