Nacogdoches couple falls in love in Cardiac Rehab

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - That's exactly how Stan and Dianne met.  He's 77 and she's 64 and both are widowed.

But their heart condition is what brought them together.

They were both patients at Nacogdoches memorial hospital, doing cardiac rehabilitation.

The couple says they started off as friends, after meeting among the treadmills and stationary bikes.

And before they knew it, they were in love.

"Every time I see her... my heart beats a little faster. You never get too old for love," says Stan and Dianne, while finishing each other's sentence.

They kept their dating a secret from everyone at rehab, but people started getting suspicious.

So they announced not only their relationship but their engagement as well.

They started dating last November and plan to get married two weeks.
