Widow saves sidewalk where husband scrawled his love in wet concrete…52 years ago at age 12 Published: June 13, 2014

Shortly after a preteen David Hewitt met Sissy at a mutual friend’s “boy-girl party,” he scrawled “David + Sissy” in wet concrete near the Charleston, South Carolina, homes where they lived two doors down from one another.

During their years together, they would occasionally come back to the fateful sidewalk where he first proclaimed his love to her.
