After Bassey’s husband of 30 years, Luther Davis, died in 2008, she took a grief recovery course and was inspired to help others deal with their own grief. One of the people she helped was Bamford, who was suffering after losing his wife of 50 years to cancer. One thing led to another and the pair fell in love!
“Two and a half years later, here we are,” Bassey told People. “I never dreamed when I met George it would turn into this. From the first minute we met, it was very comfortable.”
“She’s very giving and has a good heart,” Bamford said. “I sensed right away that she’s the kind of person who knows how to fall in love and has been in love, as I had. And once you’re in love and you’ve felt love, you miss it. And you long for it again and try to replicate it.”

In addition to their engagement, the happy couple have also been cast together in a pilot about autism and dementia. Bassey and Bamford haven’t settled on wedding plans, but are considering a small ceremony in Indianapolis where his daughter lives.
Such a beautiful and inspirational story — Our best wishes to the happy couple for a lifetime of happiness together!
