A couple have celebrated their sixtieth wedding anniversary with a surprise party and a card from the Queen.
At the party organised by their grandchildren Elizabeth and Peter Biggs greeted a friend they hadn’t seen for five years and Mrs Bigg’s brother who she hadn’t seen for six years.
“I still haven’t come down to earth yet,” said Mrs Biggs from her Quainton home.
“I couldn’t believe it when I saw my friend who now lives in France and my brother who lives in Kent. The tears just rolled down my cheeks I was so overwhelmed.
“We were thrilled with the card from the Queen.
“My husband took me out to an Italian restuarant for a meal on our anniversary evening.
“Then we went to the Golden Wedding party of our neighbours on Friday, then we had this surprise party organised by our granddaughters Charmaine and Melanie on Saturday.”
Mr and Mrs Biggs have three children, two sons Terry and Ian, and a daughter Sandra who died from breast cancer 16 years ago.
Mrs Biggs said: “We’ve had trobuled waters over the years.
“Sandra was the light of my life and it crucified me when she died.
“Love makes life go round, without it you can’t survive.
“Whatever is happening you have to dig your feet in and move to calmer waters.
“I love my husband more today than when I met him.”
