89 yr olds marry

EAST STROUDSBURG, Pa. -

You are never too old to fall in love.

Just ask Jim and Pearl Toler. At 89 years young, they got married Sunday at the Big A Grillhouse in East Stroudsburg. Monroe County.

They've known each other since they were six years old and growing up in North Carolina but they lost touch after World War II.

After 70 years,  they reconnected.

It was just two years ago when Jim got an email from Facebook saying he might know someone who had just joined.  It happened to be Pearl.

"I decided to call her instead of emailing her. Cost me $2.00 to get her phone number,' said newlywed Jim Toler.

The two emailed for about a year and then Jim came from California to Monroe County for a visit and that's when he got his first kiss with Pearl.

He says he knew it was meant to be.
