“Three children and six grandchildren later and we’re still together, and enjoying a life together that most folks envy, and many families only hope for. I have a funny feeling that this journey is far from over. We have so much still to see, so many places to experience, and still so very memories to share.”

Fred and Theresa, married 45 years

“Their love story began in high school – Ken says he saw Phyllis playing the piano in the school orchestra and fell in love – Phyllis says it took her awhile to be interested in him. But we know the end of the story! Fifty-seven years, two children, six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren later their love for each other is greater and stronger.”

“I love you for everything you’ve been through with me. You have put up with me for all of these years, and I am as lucky now as I was the day I married you.”

Larry and Caroline, married 54 years

“If I could describe what a life of happiness looks like, I would tell you the love story of my grandparents. This handsome young sailor swept my then 15-year-old grandma off her feet, they married, had three children, 6 grandchildren, and 11 great-grandchildren. They have traveled the world together, owned businesses, built homes, traveled cross country (and to Alaska) in their motorhome, and have had a blast doing it all!”
