These sweet American senior citizens are proving it’s never too late to find true love.
Murphy Wilson, 70, and Lucinda Myers, 67, plan to wed on July 29 in Huntsville, Alabama. Wilson’s daughters, Gina Woods and Danita Jones, encouraged them to take these precious engagement photos, and now social media can’t get enough.
In an interview with ABC news, Wilson who was widowed in 2013 talked about his life after his late wife Antoinette, and how he wasn’t sure he could move on until he met Myers at church. Now they will marry in the same church where they met. He said:
“We were married for 41 years. We were very, very, very close. I discovered about myself I’m not built to be a bachelor. I didn’t like being by myself. We literally said, To have and to hold til death do us part and that was what we went through. But I got to a point where I recognized I still have a lot of love left.”

After his wife’s death, Wilson said he would ‘pray and pray‘ for the Lord to bring someone else into his life, until he realized, the answer to his prayer had been sitting on the balcony with him for the last four years.
Myers agreed, explaining that she and Wilson had been eyeing each other for quite some time at church but had never really spoken. She said:
“He has a beautiful smile. I love him so much and he has such a calm demeanor about him. The Lord just put us together for a reason. We’re just so happy. I couldn’t have asked for a better mate. I need to hurry up and say, ‘I do.”
Wilson said he loves Myers so much and that he is so excited about marrying his sweetheart. He also added that when he finally sees her walk down the aisle, he may be so excited that he might run to her.

He also stated:
“And of course she fell in love with me because of my charm and suave. My daughters — and I love my daughters — they decided they were going to be wedding planners and put all of this together. They decided we should have a photo shoot in the downtown park of Huntsville.”
Myers is excited because she said she never had a real wedding before. This time around she’s already chosen her wedding dress and is hiding it from Wilson.
