  1. 60 Years Later, Man Finds Woman He Met, Lost.

    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Ralph Dial could remember Vinita Anderson's smile, hair and the first day they met in the early 1940s. But it took Dial more than 60 years to remember her name.

    It finally came to him while driving during Christmastime in 2002. He tracked her down by going through old newspapers in Knoxville. He found her name on a letter to the editor. He called the Knoxville News Sentinel, and the editorial department contacted Anderson on Dial's behalf. She called him a few minutes later. She only lived 30 miles away. They were both widowed, so they continued their conversation over dinner.

    Four years later, Dial asked for Anderson's hand in marriage. They'll marry on March 17 -- the same day they became engaged last year.
