It's been 66 years since James Hill and his wife Phyllis, tied the knot.

Four kids, nine grandchildren and six great-grandchildren later it's safe to say things have changed since their wedding day, although, not everything is different. The unconditional love they have for each other hasn't faded a bit.

Then, there's Phyllis' wedding dress. It looks just like it did on the day they wed.

"All I know is she looked pretty, beautiful in it," James says.

The dress is a lot more than a piece of clothing.

"It's something that we've cherished all of our life," James says.

About 67 years ago, James, who was in the Air Force, took leave from home base and went to see Phyllis. He brought a gift along with him.

"I said, do you want a parachute? And she says, yeah," James says.

"He gave me the parachute," Phyllis says. "And it was my decision what to do with it."

James went back to base and didn't see the parachute again until Phyllis walked down the aisle.
