Lost love story

Lost love story - Carol & George

When Carol Harris starred as Sleeping Beauty in a third grade play, her co-star George Raynes “laid a big wet one on her.” George was playing the prince and had just initiated his first kiss.

George moved from Saint John, New Brunswick to Toronto, Ontario after high school, where he got married and raised a family.

Decades passed, and 61 years later, he lost his wife.

He decided to revisit his old stomping grounds in Saint John, and there, Carol and George crossed paths again.

The two hit it off and quickly became close friends. A romance blossomed, and George proposed to Carol in an Ontario restaurant.

Rounding out their fairytale first kiss, George told People magazine that their romance was “Like Beauty and the Beast,” and Carol says, “I finally found my Prince Charming.” Amazingly, 75 years after their first kiss, they were married.
