A Saskatchewan man’s remarkable weight loss helped he and his wife celebrate a special anniversary with a trip back in time.
Walter and Janine Katelnikoff marked their 50th anniversary in July. They wanted to take a drive to the Dundurn church where they got married in 1968.
Janine answered the call Friday morning when guest host Drew Remenda put out the call for good news stories on the Brent Loucks show.
She said she and Walter were able to make the trip to Dundurn extra special thanks to her husband’s efforts to lose weight since January.
“I held out his wedding suit jacket and he tried it on and it fit. The reason why is because he lost 50 pounds since Jan. 1,” she said.
Janine was also able to get into her wedding dress, allowing the couple to pose for photos in front of the church wearing the outfits they were in when they tied the knot.
“It was pretty exciting driving down, talking about the day and re-living some of the memories,” Janine said.
She said the secret to five decades of happiness was pretty simple.
“To always know you love them even through the thick and thin. To forgive, laugh and live.”
