Old couple reconnects after being apart for 60 years

(Yahoo)–Finding true love can happen at any age. Peggy Marie Pence and Henry Freund, college sweethearts from Tennessee, first fell in love in the early 1950s as students at Southwestern at Memphis (now known as Rhodes College). But when Freund graduated, joined the Army, and moved away, Pence moved on with her life, graduating from Southwestern, marrying Howard Schuster, and having three children. Freund was stationed at Fort Bliss, in El Paso, Texas, where he got married and had three children, as well. Years later, Freund attended seminary and was ordained into the ministry. During a church meeting back in Tennessee, Freund heard that his former love had been widowed. He, too, had lost his spouse. Freund wrote to Schuster to express his sympathies for her loss. Ten years later, Schuster gave Freund her e-mail address, and the two began to communicate again. Freund said, “It didn’t take long for the spark that had survived for 60 years to burst into flames.” The couple married Sunday, May 13, in a ceremony at Canterbury Place Assisted Living. Regarding his long-lost love, Freund added, “It took 60 years, but Cupid’s arrow will finally find its mark.”

GET IT HENRY!!! GET IT!!! I effing LOVE this Henry Freund character.  He can play for me any day.  Just the ultimate opportunist.  “Your husband died…so sorry to hear that…let’s meet for coffee or something.” That’s how it’s done.  He has probably been playing that game for his whole life.  Just swooping in on the rebound.  This old broad’s husband’s body wasn’t even cold yet and Henry was laying the ground work for a hook up.  I hope he pulled some lines from “The Notebook”…IT WASN’T OVER!!! IT STILL ISN’T OVER!!! Then he did what every old bastard in that situation should do. He locked it down.  Married Peggy Marie.  Had to.  When you’re old and you find a chick that can stand your presence for more than 10 seconds you need to hold on to her like grim death…which isn’t far off.  Henry Freund…for the win.
