BATHURST, NEW BRUNSWICK, CANADA (CBC News/CNN) -

They may not be able to hear each other anymore, but Diana and Willie Robichaud still speak the language of love. The two have been married for 80 years. 

Diana turned 99 this year, and her hubby Willie is 101. The two have 13 grandchildren, 15 great grandchildren, and two great, great grandchildren. They were all there to celebrate their big day on Thursday.  

Still, Diana and Willie's children wonder how they do it. 

"What did you think when you met her?" Willie was asked. 

"What did I think?" Willie responded.

"Yes, what did you think?" 

"Oh... I think a lot!" he said. 

"They were not feeling too good these last couple of weeks there... and we were scared they wouldn't be able to make it,” said daughter Rosa Gallant. 

"But we celebrated them lots, Rosa!" said Rosa’s sister. 

One of their daughters says she never really saw her parents mad. She says she could feel the love.
