Let me show you a love song

Mort and Meredith Young came to the StoryBooth  to document their love story as a gift to  their grandsons. They say it was love at first sight – almost. Actually, there were several occasions over eleven years when they should have met, but life stepped in and said, “not quite yet.”  After years of living  separate lives, a friend of Meredith’s  arranged  a blind date. Mort said, “When that door opened, and I saw you, I knew that you were the woman I wanted to marry.” And, 50 years later well, the picture says it all.
