GLACE BAY — Love has no bound­aries.

Lloyd Lamb, 90, and his wife Anna, 85, have been mar­ried for 65 years. And al­though Anna has been a res­i­dent of Vic­to­ria Haven Nurs­ing Home since 2003, not much has changed for the Sec­ond World War vet­er­ans.

“He is here to see her ev­ery sec­ond night,” said Joanne White, ac­tiv­ity di­rec­tor at the nurs­ing home. “He brings her muffins, grapes, lit­tle treats. They sit and hold hands. “They are just a sweet cou­ple.” What makes a mar­riage work for 65 years?

“Com­pro­mise is the big thing,” ac­cord­ing to Lloyd. Their love story be­gan in 1943. Lloyd, born in south­ern Man­i­toba, was sta­tioned with the Royal Cana­dian Air Force in Syd­ney and one night he at­tended a dance at the Glace Bay Min­ers’ Fo­rum.
