A 70th Wedding Anniversary

Ed & Connie King on their 70th Wedding Aniversary

My parents’ next door neighbours, Eddie & Connie King, celebrated their 70th Wedding Anniversary last night. 70 years of marriage! Connie is a spritely 90 and Ed is 95, still drives and has a facebook profile. Lad! They say the secret to their enduring relationship is “love and a sense of humour”, which gives me some hope!

They have some pretty notable friends in turns out. Her Majesty couldn’t be there in person but she did send them a card congratulating them on their fantastic achievement. Put herself on the front though which seemed a little bit arrogant…

  1. This is lovely to see. My late nanna was Connie’s cousin, and I’m currently working on the family tree. I’ve not spoken to Connie, but got her address from my mam. Can’t find Eddie’s facebook page though to send a message!
