US Veteran Fell In Love With French Woman During War, Got Separated and Then Reunited After75 Yrs
6Robbins gave up hope of meeting Jeannine
Robbins may have not stopped loving Jeannine but now at the age of 97, he was quite sure that Jeannine must have passed away. So he told the French journalists that he might like to visit Jeannine’s village in order to meet his family when he will visit France to celebrate the 75th anniversary of D-day.
7A reporter made some extra efforts
With the help of Jeannine and her village’s photo that was shown by Robbins, a reporter find out Jeannine who is living in a retirement home in Montigny-lès-Metz, Moselle which is almost 27 miles far from where the lovebirds met each other for the first time.
A reunion of the lovers was arranged at the same retirement house where Jeannine was staying and the veteran was informed that Jeannine is very much alive and she is waiting for him. It must have been a big surprise from Robbins and we are sure that Jeannine who is 92 yrs old now must have been shocked as well after knowing that she is going to meet him after 75 years.
9What they told to TV channel?
Robbins told a French TV channel that while leaving he said to Jeannine that he may return to take her with him but it didn’t happen. Jeannine said that she cried when Robbins was leaving in a truck and she also said that she wished that he wouldn’t have returned to America.
10When they met after 75 years
When the two lovers met each other after 75 yrs, they hugged each other passionately, looked into each other’s eyes with love, adoration and happiness. This must be one of the greatest moments of their lives and also the most unexpected one as it is almost impossible to meet someone so distant after so many years.
