Delhi couple to mark 60 years of marriage


So how does a couple celebrate Valentine’s Day after almost 60 years? The same as always, Gert and Dick said: With an emphasis on family.

“One of our sons will be here, and maybe our daughter,” Dick said, “so we will have dinner together.”

Gert and Dick said they have five grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, who they see semi-regularly, depending on the time of year and location of their families.

When asked if they had any advice for young couples this Valentine’s Day, Gert and Dick said to persevere, no matter what.

“Love one another and your family,” Gert said. “And don’t ever let anything interfere with that.”
