“The door slid aside, and there she stood — the prettiest girl I had ever seen.”
In the time it took Paul Wilson to ride the elevator up 10 floors to his office, he knew he had met someone special – Wilma. He had just been drafted and was about to spend three years in the service. Three days after returning, Paul and Wilma were married. They remained together and in love for the next 63 years.
At StoryCorps, Paul reminisced about the first time he laid his eyes on the love of his life.
