68 years of marriage

Recently,  one of the Dinner Friends father's passed away.  He was 94 years old.  I was astonished that he and his wife were married for 68 years.  Not many people are lucky enough to be married that many years.

While I only met him once, after giving my condolences to his wife, I saw their lives through pictures and you could tell what a wonderful marriage they had.  They also played a video of when the couple was interviewed when they were married for 66 years from a local TV station.  One of the things I remembered the most that they said was that every night before they went to bed, they would kiss and say they loved each other.

Now that was true love.

That's a touching story and something we don't see often these days.
