Apparently, love knows no age limit and gets sweeter the longer it ripens. Bishop Horace Hall Sr., 90, of Beaumont, and Pastor Winnie LeBlanc, a 75-year-old native of Wells, were married Saturday, April 6, at Kingdom Connection Church in Beaumont.
The two pastors were family friends for more than 30 years but became involved in January.
