"It's profoundly sad, but except for being so sad it's truly romantic," friend Barbara Jean Powell said. 

Maybe Fark has just jaded me, but...I fail to see what is romantic about dying. Together, alone, or otherwise.

I disagree..... The thought of dying at the same time as my wife of 25+ years is highly romantic.... Assuming I didn't fall asleep while driving us somewhere

Listen who among us would not cop the last feel in the intervening minutes of this? Who will have judgment you will have death soon anyway.

Only 45 years? Geez, they sound too young to die. Heck, I've been married nearly 40 years and am definitely NOT ready to die. Also, my wife's parents are 89 & 90 and still hiking and square dancing, and my people lived long lives, too, so I'm guessing death in another 5 years, more or less, is statistically improbable for us.

I'm not sure I'd call it romantic but it's nice that neither had to deal with the death of the other.  That's a pretty good way to end it.

Nice headline, Subby.  Too bad Florida tag trumps all.

(I would have went with Spiffy myself.)

Nah.

Spiffy - as in similar to Spaceman Spiff.

I find memories of reading Calvin and Hobbes strips much more entertaining than reading about wrinkly old goats that expired like a magazine subscription.

not news, clearly we have seen people who are in a weakened state already, die from emotional distress like loosing another.

TFA author Robert Nolin must have gotten a new vagina and wanted to try it out.

They died separately at the same hospital, 15 minutes apart, unknown to each other.

I guess they had Alzheimer's.
