“We met one weekend when I went to visit my sister in college. I was 15 and he was 17, a college freshman. He drove over to see me three or four times after that, we wrote each other during the war, and we got engaged through the mail. He was discharged from the service on February 15, 1946, and we married a week later. I was 19 years old and he was 21. We hadn't been around each other all that much, but I think we adjusted pretty well. This coming February, we'll celebrate our 70th anniversary."
“What do you think has kept you together?” “Our children and our respect for each other.”
“Seventy years is a long time. Did you ever consider divorce?”
(*laughs*) “No, but we thought about murder a time or two!”
