From Anna Harris - "My Grandma’s high school boyfriend, Jim, called her up a few months ago to plan a high school reunion. They are both 81 and widowed. Then they had another phone call. And another. Which turned into a visit. And then, they fell in love all over again. My Grandma started smiling again. Our talks started to be about her future instead of her past. She became herself again. I guess the same thing happened to Jim. His daughter called my grandma and thanked her for 'helping her dad smile again.'
Not many people marry their prom date…but tomorrow my Grandma gets to marry hers, even if it is 64 years after prom!"
Back story -
They were highschool sweethearts and even went to prom together, but Joyce Kevorkian and Jim Bowman grew apart and were both married to other people for over 50 years. But after each losing their spouses and then getting back in touch after so many years, the 81-year-olds reunited and got married, 64 years later.
The couple got in contact when Bowman was in charge of their high school reunion and they decided to reconnect and meet up. Sparks flew and he popped the question to his old girlfriend six decades after their romance began. They said “I do” on April 1. “It was just a really sweet wedding,” says Kevorkian's granddaughter Anna Harris. “The best part is just how happy they both are. They’re both talking about what they are going to do in the future. When you watch them it’s like two high schoolers that just started dating. It’s really nice.”
