Geoff Calkins has been chronicling Memphis and Memphis sports for more than two decades. He is host of "The Geoff Calkins Show" from 9-11 a.m. M-F on 92.9 FM. Calkins has been named the best sports columnist in the country five times by the Associated Press sports editors, but still figures his best columns are about the people who make Memphis what it is.

When David Porter and Kontji Anthony proclaimed their love on Facebook, it proved what we already should have known. Love doesn’t stop for a pandemic. Here are seven Valentine’s Day stories that will remind you of the wonder and durability of love.
