Lisa Leigh Bennett and Bob Lange have been voted the cutest couple in Malvern by Patch readers. Now, they're facing off against the winners from other Patch sites to win an impressive prize package just in time for Valentine's Day.
Bob—aka Farmer Bob of Sugartown Strawberries, aka Chairman of the Willistown Board of Supervisors—said he met Lisa many years ago, when she showed up at his farm.
"You're going to think I'm crazy," he recalls her saying, "but I had a dream about you."
The dream featured Bob leading animals through a desert, she told him.
A dream might have brought them together, but what's important to Lisa is that Bob is there when she opens her eyes. She has been battling cancer for three years, and he's been there to comfort her through nine surgeries and chemotherapy.
"[I] have to say... if it wasn’t for him... not sure I’d be here right now," she wrote in an email. "Waking up and seeing his face... well there are no words."
Bob said they wished the best for all the couples in the contest, and that it was a fun diversion on drizzly February days.
