SEVIER CO, TN (News Sentinel) -

Gary, 18, and Almeda Hardwick, 71, of Sevierville weren't looking for love when they saw each other at the funeral of Almeda's son in June 2015, but that's exactly what they found with each other months later.

Almeda was mourning her son Robert's death from complications due to seizures. He was 45.

Love was in their future, however.
