Couple celebrates 70 years together

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - An East Texas couple celebrates an anniversary milestone. Anne Bell and Ralph Randall celebrated their 70th anniversary at Whispering Pines Lodge nursing home.

Their actual anniversary is not for a few days, but the 90-year-old couple celebrated early and cut their anniversary cake. After the Randalls retired, they traveled the world for 20 years doing mission work.

"I made up my mind I was going to marry, get married, and stay married," said Anne Bell Randall. "You have to keep working at it."

"I have a very rich heritage and I'm pleased too, that God allowed me to be their child, and to live long enough to celebrate this moment with them," said Charles Randall, the couple's son.

The Randall's were married on Christmas Day in 1939 by Anne Bell's father who was a minister.
