Still in love: Detroit Lakes couple celebrating 70th wedding anniversary
This is a very special day for Detroit Lakes residents Albert and Ruth Gray.
Seventy years ago today, on Aug. 31, 1939, they exchanged wedding vows in Webaux, Mont. -- and nearly three-quarters of a century later, they're still together.
"When I said 'I do,' I meant it," says Albert, now 92. (Ruth is four years younger.)
The simple sincerity of his words is apparent in the tender way he kisses Ruth's cheek as they pose for a photograph together.
