Elderly Newlywed: 'It is never too late'
An 83-year-old Missouri man who married his 96-year-old girlfriend said he hopes younger people will realize "it is never too late" for love.
Kansas City couple Paul Tredo and Fern Schurr said they decided to get married after only knowing one another for just over a year, KCTV, Kansas City, reported Thursday.
"We used to eat meals together all the time. Then suddenly, there she was, and it became evident that she was the one I wanted to be with," Tredo said. "It is never too late. You are never too old."
Schurr said she was "starting a whole new life" with Tredo.
"Love is everywhere. It cannot hide from you," said Schurr. "He is my friend, and I need -- we all need -- friends, and we need people who are sincere in their hearts. And he is."
