Love is so amazing.
Isn't she lovely? 86 and glowing. 💜💜 Millie, an 86-year-old proud mother and grandmother, was married to her first husband for 41 years before he died in 1992. Years later, she reconnected with Harold, 85, who was actually a guest at her first wedding in 1952.
“I used to sing in the choir and Harold attended my church,” Millie tells PEOPLE. “I would be standing with the other choir members, waiting to walk out and he would come over and kiss me on the cheek before sitting down for the service.”
“Then when I got married [to my first husband], the whole church was invited and Harold was there,” she continues.
When Harold became sick, Millie and other church members would visit him at his house and she offered to drive him back and forth to services.
When he got better, they continued to see each other. Eight years later, he became sick again to the point where he couldn’t live alone.
“I asked him if he wanted to live with me instead of a nursing home,” Millie says. “And he said, ‘Definitely.’ ”
When he got better, Millie didn't want to live sinfully, so they set a wedding date and tied the knot on Sunday at Zion Hill Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey, in front of 200 friends and family.
