On Thursday, March 25, at Winmalee, Grethe and Egon Ostergaard celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary.
They were awoken at their home at 7.30am by a crowd of family and close friends who sang under their bedroom balcony songs in English and Danish to celebrate their special day. Their three daughters then prepared a splendid breakfast for everyone.
Egon and Grethe's granddaughter Anja Nissen, the winner of the television show The Voice, was in the USA and composed and recorded a special song to celebrate her grandparents' diamond anniversary. That song was played as everyone gathered inside to watch a slide show of the extraordinary life of this amazing couple.
