They Were Married For 62 Years, And Died On The Same Day. But What He Finally Said Left Me In Tears.

A California couple married for 62 years died just hours apart. Their story reads like a Hollywood movie, is totally real, and is a ‘love story’ in the truest sense of the word.

Maxine met Don in 1952. They fell in love immediately.

Years later, they were still the same lovers as on the first day.

They travelled the world, and started a family by adopting two children. Everything they did was done together.

And gazes upon her face, thinking of memories…

They were not only lovers, but also best friends.

Don let his beloved Maxine go as she died first. Shortly after they brought her out of the room, he followed her into eternity.

His last words he said in this life were… “This is my beautiful wife!,” and he smiled blissfully. Those were the last words Maxine would hear.
