96-year-old newlyweds marry at Kansas senior living community that brought them together

OLATHE, K.S. - "When I first came into the church, I felt like crying," Cedar Lake Village resident Doris Kruse said. "It was so wonderful to see all of those family members together and getting acquainted with each other. They all stood up and then after the vows were taken, we sang a hymn, 'Blest Be the Tie That Binds' our hearts in Christian love.'"

Good Samaritan Society vice president of operations Aimee Middleton said the Good Samaritan Society loves to "lift up awesome stories of love" so they were thrilled to find out about Carl and Doris' love story.

"People come to senior living communities like this one for various reasons," Middleton said. "Some people arrive already married and others are single and just looking for a nice, easy place to live."
