ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va (WVIR) -

Love is still in the air for one Albemarle County couple.

Herb and Fran Christoferson are 100 years old and will soon be celebrating their 75th wedding anniversary. They married on April 12, 1941 at a Baptist Church in Washington, D.C.

They live at The Colonnades, a senior living community in Albemarle County, which is where their 75th anniversary party will take place.

The couple says it was good looks and similar values and interests that attracted them to each other.

"I thought she was very pretty, that we, um, felt a lot in common. A certain kind of chemistry you might say that we felt existed that grew as we got to know each other better,” said Herb.

Fran and Herb say time for them has gone by so fast. They have three sons, five grandchildren, and four great grandchildren.

About 40 to 50 family members will be joining them for the anniversary celebration in the spring.
