80 Years of Marriage

Well, what could possibly follow a post on 70, 60 and 50 years of marriage?

George (101) and Shigeyo (96) Yamasaki of Auburn, CA were married 80 years ago on March 19. And all Shigeyo could say to her daughter about it was, "Eighty years - we've been together 80 years?"

They made it through the Depression, life in an internment camp and raised seven kids while running a farm. Six of their children are still alive. Their parents arranged their marriage and they met only once before they were married. He was 21, she was 16.
