Bill and Flora Hanlin will celebrate their one-week wedding anniversary Saturday.

They’re like most newlyweds — still adjusting to married life between staring lovingly at each other.

But the two have known each other since 1952.

Bill is 94 years old and his new bride, Flora, is 86. The two met when both Bill’s first wife, Opal Hanlin, and Flora’s first husband, James Johnston, were alive, 65 years ago.

“He and his wife came to my town as pastor, so that was how we met. His wife, Opal, and I were very good friends. We played violin together and sang in choir together. The four of us — James and Flora and Bob and Opal — did lots of fun, fun things together,” Flora Hanlin said.
