Bill’s 96-year-old mother, who attended their wedding, said that she knew from the beginning that the two were for each other.

However, she said that she could not get her son to get himself together to ask Linda to marry him.

Bill said that friends and family were shocked when he and Linda made the announcement that they were finally getting married.

When Bill was asked why he didn't propose sooner, he said: “I don’t have a good answer.”

The proposal came after both Linda and Bill have recently retired and they began spending more time together.

On the 41st anniversary of their first date, Bill finally got down on one knee and proposed.
