LP and Clyda Guidry first met when they were 19 years old, and after just six months together they knew it was the real deal.

LP served in the Army, while Clyda was a secretary at Frasch Elementary for 32 years.

They say their favorite memories together are the summers after retiring when they’d take the RV up to work at Yellowstone.

After seven decades of marriage, LP says the secret is always saying “yes” to your spouse. We’re guessing Clyda appreciates that!
