When the words are said “Till death do us path” it really means a whole lot, please check out this story.

Lena Henderson and Roland Davis on Saturday renewed their wedding vows at Buffalo New York after splittingĀ  for close to 50 years.
The couple who are both 85 years old got married as teenagers in 1964 at Chattanooga, Tennessee and later got divorced close to 50 years after.

After their divorce, they both kept in touch with each other over the years and also had several kids together.
Roland later on got married to another wife who from time to time calls Lena for advice but unfortunately she died early this January.

Roland Davis who is a vet doctor said he always thought they might get remarried.

“I always thought it might happen. It was always in the back of my mind. We’re just thankful that we could get back together.

Their youngest daughter, Renita Chadwick said “The way they would act to each other never indicated there was anything but a friendship between them. My mother never had a harsh or contrary word to say about my dad, and my dad never had anything but loving remarks to make about my mother.”

“Every person I share this story with smiles, cries or laughs,”
Roland Davis with so much excitement said “I’m just happy that we’re here,”

“You don’t think people are going to get married at this age,” he added. “”We’re just thankful we’ve lived this long and that we’re still here. We have a lot to be thankful for.”

Lena who was a widow for many years said “I think we just kept thinking about each other all the time, even though we were so far apart,”
