He’s 70 and She’s 67 — Their Engagement Story Inspires Everyone to Keep Believing in Love

A couple’s engagement photos captured by photographer Gianna Snell have gone viral for all the right reasons.

Lucinda Myers, 67, and Murphy Wilson, 70, are the perfect example of how love can find you, even at unexpected times.

As noted by ABC News, their daughters (Gina Woods and Danita Jones) loved their engagement photos so much and told them to share it with the world via social media.

The photos quickly went viral, racking up thousands of likes and even getting a repost by comedian Niecy Nash with the hashtag #KeepBelievingInLove.

Lucinda Myers, 67, and Murphy Wilson, 70, plan to wed on July 29, 2017.

“She swept me off my feet. I just fell in love with this gorgeous woman,” Wilson told ABC News of his soon-to-be wife.
“And of course she fell in love with me because of my charm and suave. My daughters — and I love my daughters — they decided they were going to be wedding planners and put all of this together. They decided we should have a photo shoot in the downtown park of Huntsville.”

Wilson almost stopped believing in love when he was widowed in 2013. He met Myers at church, where they are planning on having their wedding.

He said that after his 41 year marriage, he “got to a point where [he] recognized [that he still has] a lot of love left.”

Myers said that it took a while before they finally approached each other at church.
