LEWISTON — A Lewiston couple has proven that true love knows no age limits.

Eighty-eight-year-old Paul Walker married his longtime sweetheart 87-year-old Ann Thayer in a Lewiston rehabilitation center Tuesday in front of a small group of family and friends.

The couple had dated 17 years after meeting at church but decided to tie the knot after some gentle teasing from the staff at the Marshwood Center where Walker is rehabilitating.

Thayer visits every day.

Both have been married before.

Thayer says she has had some “beautiful years” with Walker.

Center administrator Sheri Nadell tells the Sun Journal (http://bit.ly/rXCh4I) it was the facility’s first wedding.

Thayer says they have been talking about a honeymoon in Bermuda once Walker feels better.
