What a sweet story!

Ah, true love is always possible. Even when you're 99 and you met your bride in a nursing home. Some would have given up hope, but gladly they didn't. :)

Now 99, the World War II veteran and retired postal worker from western NewYork recently married 86-year-old Virginia Hartman, a widow who raised five children.


Gilbert tells the Democrat and Chronicle of Rochester that their first encounter was in 2010 in a hall at Monroe Community Hospital, the nursing home where they both live. After that, he started visiting her every day.


And check out the little extras at the bottom, like the "Unique" wedding pictures.

Exactly! Don't worry if you're too old. You're never to old for happiness!

For one of my clinicals I was in a nursing home and I met this couple that were 93 and 90 and they had been married five years. They were so adorable!

Aw, that's so sweet! And I like the article below it about the 98 year old woman that wore her wedding dress again, from the 1930's, in a church fashion show!
