"God answered my prayers," these are the words Bob uses to describe his once in a lifetime chance to reunite with the love of his life.
The man who is in his 80s fell in love with a fair lady back in the 60s but sadly the two of them parted ways after high school.
They had even gone to prom together and dated briefly before going their separate ways.
Sixty years later, Bob who had just returned from a trip thought of Annette, his first love and decided to look her up.
"I had lost my wife a few years before that and suddenly missed Annette. My initial plan was to call John (her husband) and tell him I loved her first," he told Steve Harvey.
Bob searched high and low for his past flame and found out through the internet that her husband had passed away.
He sent a donation in his honour and mailed a condolence card to Annette.
"I told her I had been looking for her, that my wife died and I had been diagnosed with a number of diseases," he narrated.
The man who is in his 80s was shocked when Annette responded and said she had been searching for him for two and a half years.
A few hours after that Bob drove to Annette's house and proposed three weeks later. Within no time, the two exchanged their vows.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that an 88-year-old man and his 81-year-old wife celebrated 60 years of marriage in a unique way.
