The crowd included several church members like Scotty and Jan Cline, who attend Sunday school with Basses.

"It's more than a milestone," Jan Cline said. "They are the sweetest people and the most dedicated Christians."

Jeffery traveled from Tennessee to share in his parents’ special occasion.

"There are very few families who can have this type of celebration," he said.

And after 70 years, the couple are still going strong — literally.

"We are proud that they are in as good shape as they are,” Jeffery said. "They are pretty much independent” and drive around.
