Couple, Ages 108 and 105, Celebrate 82 Years of Marriage

vlrdDuranord and Jeanne Veillard are proof that a healthy lifestyle centered on God can lead to a long and productive life. The couple has been married 82 years; Duranord turns 108 today and his wife turns 105 in May. Both look incredible for their age.

They revealed the secrets of their longevity to the media,

Veillard starts his day at 5 a.m. and does five to seven pushups. For breakfast, he has a cup of tea, oatmeal and fresh fruit. Lunch and dinner consist of fish and fresh vegetables. The centenarians nap early and often.

The couple do not leave their house except to see the doctor. Neither walks without assistance. But both are looking forward to celebrating another landmark in their life.

Veillard also let The Journal News in on his secret for living a long and healthy life: “That’s God,” he said in French Creole.

Both immigrants from Haiti, they celebrated their birthdays this week with Duranord patriotically waving an American flag. What a wonderful couple and proof of the American dream.
