Couple, 93 and 89, wed in Florida
« on: June 10, 2009, 09:55:26 AM »
PALM BEACH, Fla. - A 93-year-old Florida man married his
89-year-old sweetheart after a brief courtship that follow-
ed about 20 years of friendship, the man says. Ebenezer
Rose, 93, whose previous wife of 58 years, Bernice, died
about four years ago, said he met his new bride, Monica
Hayden, 89, about 20 years ago in church, the Palm Beach
(Fla.) Post reported Monday. "She had eyes on me all these
years," he said of his bride, whose previous husbands are
both deceased. "By God's grace, we're here." Rose said he
proposed to Hayden about six months ago and the couple tied
the knot Sunday at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Palm Beach.
"I told her, `Each of us is living a lonely life. Why not
get married?'" he recalled. The newly minted Mrs. Rose,
wearing white gloves, a beaded shawl and a glittering
tiara, said the ceremony was "beautiful." "It was more
than I expected," she said.
