High school sweethearts Lauris Hiner, 89, and Paul, 90, lost touch when he left to fight in World War II. But now, 70 years later, the couple has reconnected and finally went on a date again. Paul has been wooing her with sweet messages and roses for three years, since he learned that her husband passed away 15 years ago. His wife died 10 years ago, and he has been trying to rekindle their romance.
Susan Broaddus, Lauris’ daughter, says when her mom first got roses with a card reading “All my love, Paul,” she didn’t realize who they were from. And when he called and she figured it out, he “shocked the socks off of her.”
Lauris lives in Redding, California and recently traveled with her daughter to see Paul in Seattle, where he lives. He was a perfect gentleman on their date, he brought flowers, helped her get down the steps, and even planted a goodnight kiss on his gal. “She’s giddy about it. She’s like a high school girl, with big smiles and stuff,” Susan says of her mom. “It’s really sweet and I love to see her happy and with a smile on her face.”
