Antiochian Orthodox couple celebrate 80th wedding anniversary

This is so sweet:

Quote
On Sunday, the couple will mark their 80th wedding anniversary with a quiet celebration surrounded by family and friends at the St. Nicholas Antiochian Orthodox Church in Bridgeport, where they are original founding members.

Ann said one of her daughters ordered a cake for the occasion and the baker called back, slightly confused, to confirm that it should read -- "Happy 80th Anniversary" instead of "Happy 80th Birthday."

After eighty years, Betar is still sweet on his bride and she is still sweet on him.
