Helen Jones' one wish was to meet country star George Jones. Friday, her wish came true.

At 82 years old, Morristown resident Helen Jones always had a love for country great George Jones. Not just because they shared the same last name, but she always loved his hits like "He Stopped Loving Her Today."

Friday, before the star hit the Country Tonite stage in Pigeon Forge, Ms. Jones got an extra special surprise when she was asked to go backstage to see her star.

In ill health and living in a nursing home, Ms. Jones was elated to meet the country singer.

"I'm just thrilled to death.... just to be here and to see him again," she said, adding, "I'd never thought I'd be lucky... enough to see him again."

Her friends at the Life Care Center made the arraignments for the meet and greet. She added "it's a wish come true."
