Lennie & Pearl for Roy Cooper

I’m Lennie and, I’m Pearl. And we have been together for 50 years. It’s just amazing. I can’t believe it. You know, we are so lucky. Well we moved down to North Carolina in the
early seventies. And we couldn’t have picked a better place. Pearl and I were involved in the major marriage
case in North Carolina. I wanted the day to come, when we got married,
that we would do it in our community. Fast forward to the day when we became legal
in North Carolina. The phone rang that evening, and this voice
said, “Lennie?” I said, “Yes?” “This is Roy Cooper.” I said, “Attorney General Cooper?” And he said, “I’ve called to congratulate
you and Pearl.” That was just amazing to me that the Attorney
General would call us to do that. But that just shows how supportive he has
been. I said to him, “Well, I hope the next time
I talk to you it will be, I will say Governor Cooper.” He’s a good man.
