Star Let­ter

The People's Friend - - Soap -

Read­ing about the Queen mak­ing his­tory with her Sap­phire Ju­bilee, be­com­ing the first Bri­tish monarch to reign for sixty-five years, brought to mind a lovely cou­ple I care for.

Alan and Irene Wood also cel­e­brated a big mile­stone, hav­ing been mar­ried for sixty-five years. They were de­lighted to re­ceive their sec­ond card from the Queen, the first be­ing for their Di­a­mond Wed­ding an­niver­sary.

The cou­ple have lived in and around Tam­worth all their mar­ried life and have four won­der­ful chil­dren – Denise, Linda, Keith and Ian. They also have 11 grand­chil­dren.

Alan is a long-serv­ing mem­ber of the Royal Bri­tish Le­gion and of­ten goes on pa­rade.

They truly are a re­mark­able cou­ple. When I ask what their se­cret for a long, happy mar­riage is, Irene says, “It is all about give and take and just be­ing there for each other.”

I am re­ally blessed to call them my friends.

Ms J.W., Tam­worth.
