Not-so-young, but definitely in love

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, WA.-- Neither Bob Raphael nor Nellie O'Connor came to the Charbonneau Retirement Community in search of a spouse. Each had been married before, but more importantly, they were both nearing a century in age. 

The two met on Bob's birthday, and after dating for three months, Bob decided that time was of the essence and asked Nellie to marry him. Saturday, the two said their vows at Charbonneau in the presence of their family and friends.  The two are a great example of how love knows no bounds. 

Inspired by his own experience with Nellie, Bob even had some advice to feed the hopeless romantic in all of us.

"Don't let love pass you by," he said. "If you find love, embrace it."
