A Tucson love story 25 years in the making

By Ina Ronquillo. CREATED Feb 24, 2014

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - How long are you willing to wait to ask for your soul mates hand in marriage?

For one man, it seems like a lifetime.  Decades in fact.

From the moment Gerald Burgess ever laid eyes on her, it was love at first sight.

Gerald met Jeanine Forston in the military in 1989, but it wasn't meant to be at the time, breaking his heart.

But as fate would have it, he found Jeanine on facebook in 2010.

Their love began to blossom even though he lived in Florida and she in Tucson.

Jeannine didn't quite suspect, sitting in the audience at the Gaslight Theater, that Gerald planned something special.
