More than 60 years of love for one Medford couple

MEDFORD, Ore.-- A Medford couple, who has been together for more than 60 years, said they are thankful to be together and alive this Valentine's Day.

The National Center for Disease Control and Prevention said the national average life expectancy is 78.8 years.

At 85 and 82, Ron and Juanita Atkins said they are blessed to be alive and still together all of these years.

"When you look back, you can see what's happened and what you've done, but you can't look forward and see what's going to happen," Ron Atkins said.

They said they take it day by day, and hope to have many more Valentine's Days together.
