When photographer Tracey Buyce's mom died in 2007, her parents had been married for 46 years. In 2011, she lost her father too.
"This project began as a way to stay connected to them and honor their memory," Buyce told The Huffington Post.
Norbert & Mary, married 71 years
"One thing all of these couples had in common was a quiet comfort between them," Buyce said.
"Their love is reflected in their 13 children, 24 grandchildren and the growing number of great-grandchildren. They travel, read, garden, watch 'Jeopardy,' and love sharing fond memories and stories...They are the kindest, most loving people and such wonderful role models for marriage."
Martha & George, married 70 years
"As a husband and father myself, I often wonder how, in spite of long periods of separation because of my dad's job, my parents [were able] to raise three successful and loving children -- let alone how they have remained married for almost seven decades. To this day they display a deep love and respect for each other. There must be truth to the adage 'absence makes the heart grow fonder.'"
Gloria & Walter, married 65 years
"One couple who sticks out to me is Gloria and Walter Blair. They are such a loving couple and have been married for 65 years. They have raised five beautiful daughters."
Russ & Elinor, married 63 years
"To this day they hold hands like love-struck teenagers and seek each other out when separated, saying, 'Where is my sweetheart' or 'Have you seen my honey?' Their home is the place where everybody gathers for joy and laughter and also during the hardest of times."
Henry & Jeanette, married 53 years
"Through their stories –- both the ones I know by heart and the ones I’m somehow only just learning now -– I see not only the life they’ve built, but the foundation on which it stands. On laughter, on generosity, on love. What I know about love I have learned from my grandparents; what I want out of my future, I know from their shared past."
