“They rent was so home, we could hardly afford it,” Dave explained. “$25 a month…that’s right. $25 was a lot of money in those days.”

And all were there, including five generations of family, to celebrate all the years of values and what was learned from this kind of love that lasts.
“They have always been there for each other, first and foremost. It’s pretty special,” one of their children described. “My grandparents have been an amazing role model for me in my life,” one of their grandchildren said. “I often look to them and think if I could be that lucky, I would be just, the luckiest person ever.”

“To know that so many people care enough to stand here like jerks,” Betty said, greeted with a chuckle from those around. “Excuse me, I mean. I didn’t mean it,” Betty added.
