Emily Lalinsky and Bob Messer left matching notes behind for their respective families, in which they declared their love for one another.
Lisa Schwartz, Emily's mother, said she and her children first met Bob Messer eight years ago at a church. Over time, they grew to go on trips together and celebrate holidays.
