Thomas and Irene Howard have shared their lives together since June 2, 1945. Now at their platinum anniversary they want to share the wisdom they’ve accrued over the last 70 years:

Thomas: “The secret is to go on loving each other and being faithful to each other and we’ve gone through life very, very happy.” Irene: “It’s been a great life together, it has.” Thomas: “I said to somebody, I know it’s impossible, I said ‘Roll on the next 70 years.'”

God bless Thomas and Irene in their adorable, love-filled life together. We wish them another 70 years of happiness and love.
