I enjoyed this story about Morrie and Betty Markoff who are still vital and witty and together at a very advanced age. They will appear in Aging Gracefully, a book of photos of centenarians by Karsten Thormaehlen. The Markoffs are the only couple in the book.
"We don’t know anyone else over 100. We are really oddities: two people married for 78 years, one 103, the other 100. We’ve outlived everybody. And it’s rare, I recognise that. We’re very lucky. The best I can wish you is our luck."
