Give and take

When it comes to Valentine’s Day, flowers are nice. But after 65 years of marriage, it’s the other gifts that are the most priceless.

Helen and Bud Aylor, who now live at Westwood Retirement Resort, don’t consider themselves experts on love and marriage. But they’re good at it.

They say the key is supporting each other and being kind to each other. Listening to your spouse and caring about the things that matter to them also is important.

Their marriage has survived the loss of two of their three children and 17 moves, including their latest last year into the retirement community.

“This is another adventure in our lives,” Bud says.

They met at a dance when Helen was still in high school and Bud was in the Marines.
