Good morning. I'm Tonya Mosley. In times like these, we'll never pass up a good love-conquers-all story, and this one was nearly 70 years in the making. High school sweethearts Fred Paul and Florence Harvey have reunited after 68 years apart. They'd gone their separate ways, married different people and had families of their own. After each of their spouses died, a chance encounter brought them back together. Just three days later, the two were wed. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
