Harder than Diamonds


What is there harder than diamonds? If you are not a gemmologist, the answer is easy to be done: a love story lasting more than 70 years.
As matter of fact, if a marriage is called at its 70th anniversary "diamond wedding", a matrimony lasting more is simply harder than diamonds.
Vernon, 92, and his wife Sue, 87, while he's on his dying bed, have celebrated their 72nd anniversary of life together, as last Vernon's wills.
I wish the pair to live together for ever, in the Glory of Heaven, echoing in some way what the priest told the couple, surrounded by their five sons: "You have fulfilled your promises, and God is smiling."

'He has loved me and respected me and cherished me the way he said he would when I was just a young girl and he was just a young man.

'There is nothing to be nervous about when you are walking toward the person you love with your whole heart.'

Mr McAlister is a retired agronomist and the couple have five children together.

Their sons Tony, Phil, Van and Don McAlister and daughter Anita Floyd were all present at the ceremony.

'They are a testament to love,' said Floyd.

The ceremony was conducted by family friend Bill French who told the couple they were an example to the world.

'When you took those vows all those years ago no one could have known how long that walk together would be,' said Mr French.

'You have fulfilled your promise and God is smiling.'
