still together after all these years
still together after all these years

 Meet Duranord and Jeanne Veillard, this Spring Valley, NY couple has reason to celebrate.  Duranord recently celebrated his 108th birthday with his bride of 82 years (yes, 82)  Jeanne (104).  I  saw this story recently on my Facebook news feed and had to learn more (full story NY Oldest  Married Couple).

 Duranord Veillard was born in Haiti Feb. 28, 1907. He and Jeanne were married Nov. 1932  and  moved to the US in 1968 where they raised their family of five children. They are the proud  grandparents of 12 and great-grandparents of 14.

 It is refreshing to see the sanctity of marriage kept for almost a century, I can only hope my  husband and I have close to that many years together.
