“Jim was in charge of the high school reunion so he had my grandma’s address. Jim wrote her a letter and she responded saying she’d like to reconnect and meet up,” Smith told InsideEdition.com.

The pair began talking on the phone for at least an hour a night. In December, they decided to take the plunge and meet up.

After decades apart, Bowman drove down from his Illinois home to see Kevorkian at the retirement center she resides at in Indiana.

“When he came and saw her, he said it felt like no time had passed and they had picked up where they left off,” Smith said.  "When I talked to her on the phone about it she was all giggly. You could just tell that her entire mindset had shifted. She was just so much happier.”

Bowman stayed for a week in Indiana and just a few days after his visit Kevorkian received an unexpected phone call from him.

Bowman had asked Kevorkian to marry him.

“My grandma told him ‘that sounds like a good idea,’” Smith said.

The couple tied the knot on April 1 at Kevorkian’s retirement home with the theme of “two old fools.”

“It was just a really sweet wedding. The best part is just how happy they both are. They’re both talking about what they are  going to do in the future. When you watch them it’s like two high schoolers that just started dating. It’s really nice.”
