We’re celebrating a very special anniversary in our RFBI Raleigh Urunga Masonic Village. Thelma and Neville are celebrating 71 wonderful years married. Happy Anniversary!

Thelma and Neville moved into RFBI Raleigh Urunga Masonic Village last year and have spent every day together. On their 71st wedding anniversary, their daughter Jan brought a delicious cake to celebrate the occasion with other residents and staff.

Neville and Thelma met in Myelstom, which is not far from our village and is where Thelma grew up. The pair had an instant connection. Together they have raised four children and now have beautiful grandchildren and great-grandchildren to cherish.

They are still very much in love and their advice for a long and happy marriage is to respect the other person; including their ideas and opinions even if you don’t agree and never go to bed angry.

To this day, they always say goodnight and I love you to each other.

We’re fortunate to see many relationships and friendships grow or start in our villages. It’s always a joy to see people coming together, sharing stories of love and celebrating these special moments with them.
