The second time is a charm for 85-year-old couple Lena Henderson and Roland Davis.

CBS News reported the couple married in their teens and were together for 20 years, during which time they had four children.

They divorced in 1964 but "always kept in touch," according to the Associated Press.

The couple will remarry on Saturday, with four generations of their family as witnesses.

"It's every child's dream, every child who has ever been in a family where divorce has occurred, that your parents would come back together," daughter, Renita Chadwick, told the Associated Press.

"We are all so ridiculously excited. We're like little children again," said Chadwick, who is herself a grandmother.

Davis' previous wife died several months ago and in an phone call on Easter with Henderson proposed to her. She said, yes.
