When grieving Almeda Errell went to pay her last respects at her son's funeral, the last thing she expected to find was love.
Following a whirlwind three-week romance, she and Gary Hardwick – 17 – tied the knot in a ceremony which he arranged for just $200 (£137) in six days.
And now the unlikely pair are sharing Almeda's house with one of her grandsons who is three years older than her new husband.
Almeda knew straight away that Gary was the man for her after bumping into him at her son's cremation.
Almeda wore a dress borrowed from Gary's cousin for their wedding.
Almeda admitted that she'd been searching for a soulmate but never dreamed of finding a younger man.
As far as Gary is concerned age is just a number. His previous girlfriend was 77 years old.
Young-at-heart Almeda and Gary are convinced they are the perfect match.
