Sixty years ago, Sam and Harriatte Cross were married at the United Church in Cranbrook. On September 26, at 4 p.m. — the exact moment they tied the knot — the Crosses celebrated their 60th anniversary by walking down the very same aisle together once more, surrounded by their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. When they were married, Harriatte was 18 and Sam was 21. Harriatte offered this marriage advice to other couples: “Work at it. You always have to work at it. You will have your ups and downs, but you’ll come along.”
