Herman got ready and gave Bertie a call. The couple now has two daughters, four grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. One daughter says, "I think they have a wonderful genuine feeling of what love is. They don't always show it in fairy tale ways. But I think family is most important to them."
Nephew Sandy Libow remembers their wedding 80 years ago. He was their ring bearer. "It was amazing to be here today to just think about going back that this is 80 years that they're married and I was the ring bearer."
Eight decades later Bertie and Herman still enjoy the movies, music and just holding hands. Bertie says, "We appreciate each other and we try to do whatever we can for each other."
