BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - When the cancer doctors said he had three to six months to live, Albert Lewis decided to live it as a married man.

On Saturday, the 56-year-old Lewis put on his 20-year-old Army dress uniform and exchanged vows with Dorothy Lissmore, his girlfriend of 17 years, in Buffalo’s Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

Lissmore tells The Buffalo News (https://bit.ly/1wVeSAl ) she just wants to spend the rest of her life with Lewis, “no matter how long that might be.”

Lewis’ brother Calvin says the marriage was on Albert’s “bucket list.”

Albert Lewis said the marriage was “way overdue.”
