In a small newspaper, I found the following under "Milestones of togetherness:"
Ted and Olga Bergs were married 70 years ago on April 25, 1943, in Latvia. They have five children, nine grandchildren, and 11 great-grandchildren.
Clyde Durrant McLean and Marjorie Nelson were married 70 years ago on April 27, 1943 in Rupert, Idaho and were later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple. They are parents of five children, have 25 grandchildren and 60 great-grandchildren.
Don Petersen and Cathrine (Kay) Nebeker were married 70 years ago on April 29, 1943 in the Salt Lake Temple. They have four children, 14 grandchildren, and 15 great-grandchildren.
R. Homer and Louse N. Barstow were married 70 yeras ago on April 30, 1943 in the Salt Lake Temple. They have three children, 14 grandchildren, and 14 great-grandchildren.
C. Mont and Ruth Mahoney were married 70 years ago, on April 30, 1943. They have five children, 21 grandchildren, and 36 great-grandchildren.
I am touched and impressed by these couples who have endured and enjoyed 70 years together. What a record, especially at a time when so many marriages are dissolved in a year, or in the case of a celebrity couple last year, three months.
So, for today, I am grateful for these examples of love and commitment.
