LEWISTON, Maine (AP) - A Maine couple has proven that true love knows no age limits.
Eighty-eight-year-old Paul Walker married his longtime sweetheart, 87-year-old Ann Thayer, in a Lewiston rehabilitation center Tuesday in front of a small group of family and friends.
The couple met at church and had dated 17 years. They decided to tie the knot after some gentle teasing from the staff at the Marshwood Center, where Walker is rehabilitating.
Thayer visits every day. She says she has had some "beautiful years" with Walker.
Both have been married before.
Center administrator Sheri Nadell tells the Sun Journal (http://bit.ly/rXCh4I) it was the facility's first wedding.
Thayer says they have been talking about a honeymoon in Bermuda once Walker feels better.
