Renewing Their Vows


Valentine's Day is special for many couples.

But for a handful of couples at the Continuing Care Center in Mandan they're remembering their decades of love, and promising decades more.

<<"67 years," Jack Schaaf said.

"54 years," Yvonne Huber said.

"July 10, 1965," Bert Gokim said.

These couples --- like many remember the day they said "I do."

"September the 24th 1924," Jack said.

Through their decades of love they've made many memories.

"We've done most of the stuff together, we had a garden, she had to tell me 75 percent of the time how she wanted it, but I helped," Jack said.

"We loved to dance, so we danced a lot together and we just enjoyed each others company and just always wanted to be together and here we are," Yvonne said.

"We travel a lot, as a matter of fact we were in Rome in November when my nephew became a Cardinal," Bert said.

"We partied once in a while," Jack said.

Many of those memories do call for celebration.

"Tell them how many kids we got, we got six kids," Florence Schaaf said.

Today these couples renew their vows, promising perhaps another decade or two.

"I'm used to it wouldn't want it any other way," Florence said.

"I don't think either of us ever had a thought about leaving one another or anything like that, so we're still here," Yvonne said.

"It's nice to renew, remember what you promised," Bert said.

A promise that's kept these couples together for decades.>>

Today's celebration also featured a meal, treats and coffee as well as live music.
