PEORIA, Ill. -- Valentine's day is a chance to celebrate love, an act a group of Heart of Illinois residents have been doing for more than 60 years.

On Thursday, residents at the Lutheran Hillside Nursing home celebrated Valentine's day with a party.

The couples enjoyed sweets and shared tips for achieving a long and happy marriage.

"You have to give a little more than you think you should, he has to give a little."
"Communicate. Make decisions together, just on about anything," said Jim and Doreen Warfild, they have been married 66 years.

"There are no problems that are so hard you can't solve it someway or other."
"Whatever the problem is be kind and everything will work out. It will," said George and Jane McCabe, they have been married 67 years.
