LONGVIEW, Texas — The best advice comes from experience.
With 64 years of marriage under their belts, Joe and Maria Roy, better known as Pop and Nan, of Longview, have plenty of advice to share.
The Roys are celebrating their incredible story, filled with love and laughter, that began on March 4, 1955.
You may recognize the couple from the world famous Facebook page POP WATCH, which as of Monday, has nearly 1.7 million "likes" and 2.5 million "followers."
Joe, a proud alum of Spring Hill High School, joined the United States Air Force right out of college.
"I was stationed at Ramey Air Force base in Puerto Rico," Joe said.
Meanwhile, Maria was working on the base at the same time.
"I was 18 and he was 21," Maria said. "My girlfriend Gina introduced us because he was kinda shy for an airman."
Their feelings for each other were instant. Three days after they met, Joe was scheduled to return to Texas. The new couple decided to marry and settled in Longview as husband and wife.
