Oceana County Couple Married For 55 Years Pass Away Within Hours Of Each Other
Can you die of a broken heart? I think you can. Maybe you believe in the mind-body connection, where the loss of someone you love so dearly can take its toll on you phyically. I believe that can be the case as well. This Oceana couple was married for 55 year years and on Sunday, they died within hours of each other. Having a spouse gives some people a reason to live. Possibly he lost his reason when his wife passed on.
This is a beautiful love story. I remember hearing talk show icon, Phil Donahue, say this years ago. Even as a small child I never forgot it. I feel this way about my parents. He said it was an old Irish saying, it goes like this, "I pray that you may live to be 100 years, and I one day less, so that I may never know the day you pass". That pretty much sums it up doesn't it.
