High school sweethearts reunited after 60 years

A pair of high school sweethearts were finally reunited after being separated for more than 60 years.

Louise White and Earl Jessee dated back in high school until earl got shipped off with the Navy.

Five years later when Earl got out of the military they got back together. But just hours before they planned on getting married, Louise called it off.

Louise and Earl went their separate ways, both got married and had children, but always wondered what the other was doing.

In October, Earl found Louise on the internet and asked for a reunion.

"I don't know," Louise said, "I just always wanted to see him again to explain why I left and didn't marry him."

White said they are both happy to be back in each others lives. But they still want to take it slow.
