We were so taken with Audrey and Steve that we couldn’t resist giving their precious portrait a full page in V6! They’ve been married for 63 years and were so gracious to share a few sweet words of wisdom with us.
When did you know he was the one? I knew on the first date…just the type of guy he was, his gentleness really struck me. I knew he was going to be special to me.
What’s your favorite wedding memory? Actually, we eloped, and on the way home, we stopped in Diamond, Oklahoma, and ate lunch. When we were through eating, Steve surprised me with a small wedding cake.
What’s the secret to your marriage? I guess if I had to choose only one thing, love. Always hold each other special, set apart from all else.
What’s your favorite thing to do together? Go to movies and ball games.
What’s your best marriage advice? You need to be honest with each other. It pays to tell your partner that you love them each day.
