Musical Anniversary of Longview Couple

It was a special "musical" anniversary for a couple in Longview today as they celebrated 60 years of marriage. Stan and Jane Roberts celebrated their 60th weddinig anniversary at First United Methodist church earlier this afternoon.

86-year-old Stan has been a longtime musical songwriter and piano player at Johnny Cases restaurant for decades , and still performs Fridays and Saturdays there. He commemorated todays anniversary by playing a song he had written for Jane when he was going to college... A song that means more than presents to his wife.

"Some young woman came up to me and asked how did I live with one man for 60 years, I said my halo pinched every once in a while" says Jane.

"We were married on Lincoln's birthday when I was in the Navy in San Diego," said Stan.  "I'm 86 now my forgettor works."

The couple have been blessed with 2 children, 5 grandchildren and 8 great grand children.
