GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -
Sonny Scardino and Laura Moore are newlyweds, but they are certainly not your typical newlyweds.
"When I met him, how could I resist?" Laura asked with a twinkle in her eye. "He was in a baby blue Cadillac convertible, in a military uniform. I mean what more could a girl want?"
That day was back in February of this year, at a Pass Christian Mardi Gras parade. Sonny had three retired female Naval veterans in his convertible. That's when a mutual friend introduced them. To say the least, Sonny was impressed from the very beginning.
"Well, I thought maybe I would ask for a date," he said with a chuckle.
Sonny is a pretty smooth operator. He took Laura and her friends from the Red Hat Society on a tour of his room at the Armed Forces Retirement Home, and he put some music on the stereo.
Laura chuckled when she told us what happened next.
"He just kind of put his arm around me and said let's dance, and we did."
But a few weeks later, Laura went off to Russia for a vacation. Sonny took her to the airport and got a nice surprise, his first kiss from the lady who would be his future wife.
As the saying goes, the rest is history.
Not long after getting back, Sonny proposed. August 14th, they married at the chapel on the grounds of the Armed Forces Retirement Home.
Sonny is the first resident to get married there since it reopened last year. Both of the newlyweds described it as a beautiful wedding in a gorgeous setting.
Sonny is 80, and Laura is 14 years younger, and they are both widows. Laura wants people to know that just because someone has lived on this earth a lot of years, life can still be full of love, laughter and happiness. She and Sonny, are certainly living proof of that fact.
Sitting side by side, holding hands, they simply said with a smile on their faces, "life is good."
