This is proof that true love never dies and that if something is meant to be, it will happen. The story of Bob Harvey and Annette Callahan began when they were in high school. It all started in 1956 during a high school dance. Bob fell in love with Annette when she transferred from Pikeville, Kentucky, to Gar-Field High School in Woodbridge, Virginia!!!
Following that, they began dating on a regular basis and became deeply in love. After Annette was transferred to reside in Kentucky after graduating from high school, they decided to part ways. They went about their daily routines. Bob married Diane in 1959, and Annette married John in 1961.
John, Annette’s husband, battled dementia for seven years. On the other hand, Diane, Bob’s wife, battled with cancer for an even longer time. Diane passed away because of cancer, leaving Bob a widow, and when he learned that Annette was a widow as well after losing her husband four years earlier, he sent her a condolence card that was more like a love letter than a consolation.
Eight days later, Annette gave him a call. The next day, Bob drove for 12 hours from Virginia to Ohio and delivered flowers to Annette. They were engaged one month later and they got married a few months after that.
