Although 65 years have passed since Amon and Joyce Benson have said I Do, some aspects of love will never change, they just become stronger through the smiles and tears. Your family wishes you a very special anniversary as you look back on all the happy memories you've shared in your long marriage together. We love you, happy anniversary.
