Husband and Wife Dies Together After a Long Innings of 62 Years inseparably still holding hands by dying just four hours apart.
This seems to be a fairy tale that a couple dies holding each other’s hands. This is not a wish that can be fulfilled by all but this has happened. Don and Maxine Simpson who lived in Bakersfield, California were gravely in love with each other. They had been married for an incredible period of 62 years.
Their relatives mention that it was fate that brought them together and left for heavenly abode together dying just four hours apart from each other. Don Simpson fell and had broken his hip sometime ago whereas Maxine was battling cancer. It was Maxine who died first and while she was being taken out of the room Don breathed his last.
Their granddaughter Melissa Sloan has mentioned that grandpa and grandma always lived together and they will also die together. This is the kind of deep love she has seen among them. It was two weeks ago that Don broke his hip while he was at home.
He was taken to hospital for treatment but gradually his health started to decline. In the meantime Maxine’s cancer also started progressing. His granddaughter said they made sure that their beds were placed next to each other. This is just an amazing story – they had met each other at a bowling alley.
Don Simpson was a civil engineer in North Dakota and he was stationed for his work at Bakersfield in California. This is where he met his love Maxine at the bowling alley. There they decided they were made of each other and over the years to come they travelled across the world and also adopted two songs all along the way.
They had two sons and they lived to their fullest while they were alive. While Don fell two weeks ago he asked his family members to keep his bed near to Maxine. Maxine while in her last hours knew that Don was next to her and she held his hand while leaving the world; the moment she was taken out of the room Don also breathed his last.http://www.aartiinformatics.com/relationship/husband-and-wife-dies-together-after-a-long-innings-of-62-years/http://www.aartiinformatics.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/couple-dies-with-holding-hands.jpghttp://www.aartiinformatics.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/couple-dies-with-holding-hands-300x300.jpgRELATIONSHIPcouple,couples,couples in love,happy couples,healthy relationships,unconditional loveThis seems to be a fairy tale that a couple dies holding each other’s hands.
