I just read another heart-touching story about a Pennsylvania couple who died within twelve hours of each other. The couple, Richard and Nancy, had been married 61 years.
Nancy had died in her sleep while Richard was in the hospital recovering from a fall, among several other health issues. Once his children broke the news of Nancy's death, he relapsed. Some of his final words were, "Pull me up," and "Hold me tighter now."
I'd like to think that she was helping him in his final moments so that they could one at last. Blessings be upon their soul.
