Irene and Eugene Haas exchanged vows in a little church in Honey Creek, Texas, about half way between Boerne and New Braunfels on Feb. 20, 1940. That makes 73 Valentine's Days they have spent together. "We've had a lot of exciting moments together," said Irene. The key to a long, happy marriage? "Respect each other," said Irene, as she accepted a holiday basket from Gene during a recent visit at Bandera Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center.
