Richard Guess, 101, and his wife of 75 years, Edith, 104, have been selected as February's Co-Centenarians of the Month by "The Living Century," a PBS series produced by Barbra Streisand's company Barwood Films, profiling people whose lives have spanned the entire 20th century. "What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day then to honor a couple who has been together since the 1920s?" Steven Latham, of "The Living Century," said in a statement. As for the Guesses, they reportedly spent most of their lives in Evanston, Ill., before moving recently to an assisted living facility in Albuquerque, N.M., to be closer to their daughter. She's 75.
