Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “Elderly couple die on same day after spending 65 years together”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

An elderly couple who had been together for nearly 65 years died on the same day earlier this month while living together in a nursing home.

The couple, Jack and Harriet Morrison, pushed their beds together so they could hold hands in the St. Louis-area nursing home where they each died on Jan. 11, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

“I’m sad. But I know they’re at peace and they’re back together,” Sue Wagener, a niece raised by the couple said.

The couple met in 1955 when Jack was driving a charter bus and Harriett was a passenger on the bus with her father and his drum and bugle corps.

The couple married less than a year after meeting — and rarely separated from one another for the nearly 65 years they spent together.
