It’s hard to sum up everything Ray and Joyce Litherland have done during their lives.

Married almost 60 years, the Las Vegas couple raised three children. All have successful careers. The youngest, Kenneth, was born deaf.

They’ve traveled the world and treated each of their seven grandchildren to trips of their choice for their 13th birthdays.
