A widow for 10 years, Charlene Horton briefly met widower Ben Boyd at a Cancer Fighters charity event this summer, and a stolen glance was all she needed. Their mutual friends, Maureen and Mark Hay, arranged to have them meet again at a dinner at their house. Although Ben left for a family trip soon after, he called her every day from Russia. Once back in town, they knew their future would be together; she is 80 and he is 78. Joanne Naponic and Traci Shaffer threw a surprise lingerie bridal shower just weeks before the wedding at Chapelwood. After a honeymoon in Hawaii, a new life began with the couple and small dog Peggy Sue.
