Jim Weir remains active -- and still makes deliveries -- at the Trinity Terrace apartment complex where he's lived since 2003.

For Jim Weir, the post office really delivered


The United States Post Office has played an important role in Jim Weir's life.

The postal service kept him employed for much of his life, for one thing. Weir spent 35 years working for the government, starting as a substitute carrier and eventually working his way up to management.

But that's not the important part.

The post office also helped Weir find the woman with whom he would spend nearly 60 years. With whom he would raise two children. The love of his life.
