EL PASO, Ark. (KTHV) - Love is an emotion that's hard to explain, and words never seem to do the feeling any justice. Karolyn and Tony Glover met at their local post office and have spent the last seven years side by side, but made it official just last month.
"Went to Lonoke, got the papers, went across the street to a floral shop, got married and brought the papers back and said 'There, we're legal,'" said Karolyn.
But their love is now fighting two fights, and one of them is for Tony's life.
"We found out it was stage four lung cancer, and then about six months ago, they did another scan, and it had moved to the brain in three places to stage four brain cancer," said Karolyn.
The other fight is for their home.
"He couldn't keep his business open anymore. He owned a cabinet business, and we ended up having to close the cabinet shop, and the bank foreclosed on us," said Karolyn.
The foreclosure left the Glovers just over a month to get out. They spent what money they had on another home, but realized it needed some love of its own.
"There was nothing done. It needed completely new dry wall; it needed plumbing, electricity you know. I couldn't move him down there," said Karolyn.
But the funny thing about love, it seems to spread pretty fast. The community around the Glovers reached out help them in their time of need.
"A lot of them have jobs, and they come out here after work and donate their time. There's nothing like it. There are some good people left in this world," said retired veteran Tony Chisum. "When she told me what was going on, I made a few phone calls. This guy here, this guy here, this guy here, this guy here, that lady there, everybody."
"Just trying to help these people out and get everybody happy and moved in and taken care of," said Patrick Patterson.
"That's just the way we was raised. We've always been taught to work hard and help people out when we can," explained McElhaney.
"Bikers take care of their own, and we were glad to be able to donate, and we gathered up $501 from our club to give to the family," said Moses with the 501 Crew Biker Club.
"I don't know where they came from they're a bunch of angels," said Tony Glover, and those angels working day and night, putting love into the Glovers' home and hope back in their hearts.
"You just never realize how many people love you until you're in this situation," said Karolyn.
Tony Chisum said friends and neighbors continue to donate money and supplies to finish the home by Christmas. They're still in need of cabinets, underpinning and a lot more to complete the project, but they'll do whatever it takes to give the Glover's peace of mind and a new place to call home.
