Sup Travellers?! It seems like the only thing that can separate 79-year-old Brave Janet Jones and her 85-year-old husband Gethin Jones is death and they reminded themselves of that fact just days before Mrs Jones is expected to die.

Mrs Jones was diagnosed with terminal cancer earlier this year and doesn't have very long to live again. But she vowed to stay alive long enough to see her diamond wedding anniversary and that dying wish was answered last week Thursday when Mr. and Mrs Jones both renewed their wedding vows at Compton Hospice in Wolverhampton after 60 years of marriage.

Mrs Jones said her life now feels "complete" after defiantly vowing she "wasn't going anywhere" until she had celebrated her wedding anniversary.

She said: "They can keep knocking that door, but I said I am not going anywhere until I have seen our diamond wedding anniversary. And depending how I feel, I might even stay a few days longer. I now feel my life is complete. If the good Lord will give me a little more time to tell everybody how much I love them. I would very much like that, but if not, I will thank him for the time he has given me with Gethin. He has always been so kind to me and has always looked after me. I've loved every second with Gethin, I can't imagine having my life without him.I know the time will come soon when I am away from Gethin for a bit, and I know he will miss me.  But I know one day we will all be back together again."

The pair met at a dance in Willenhall, West Midlands, and got married at St Anne's Church in the town on June 26, 1954. They didn't have any children and devoted their lives to running a baby clothing shop in the town.

Congratulations to these two lovely folks on their 60th wedding anniversary. 60 years is definitely a long time to be in a relationship and I commend them on their achievement. I hope that they can see this rough patch through into eternity. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
