True love.

I cleaned a very dusty entertainment system this morning and didn't shed a goddam tear.

The Morbidity of Bereavement has been an accepted piece of medical wisdom for longer than I've been alive. When couples are very close it is common for them to die within a year or two of each other.

CSB, this is my great uncle and great aunt (grandmothers sister.) Grandma still likes to write me letters about every three months and constantly talked about them in her letters even though I hadn't seen them since I was 10. No one told Kenny about Helen. He was still asleep when she passed. He just kinda knew after he was awake for a few hours.

Where were they going without ever knowing the way?

Of course, it might also be eating your wife's cooking for seventy years.

my great grandma(I know you have more than 1 set but I only had 1set that was around long enough for me to remember) died like 6 months after my great grandpa. She was several years younger than him and wasnt overweight and didnt have high blood pressure or high cholesterol.

I dust when I can't see the TV screen anymore.

While this didn't make me cry, it was a very sweet story to read. I hope my fiance and I are as lucky as these two.
 
2014-04-19 04:53:08 PM
not such an amazing thing when you consider she was the one who sorted all his daily pills, which at 91 would have been at least a dozen

The living to be in their 90s and still in love part. Not the losing of the leg and suffering at the end. But they seemed to live a very content life.

Or, ya know... major upheavals, bereavement and stress can kill fragile 90+ year olds.

Still, probably happier than most alternatives.

Kenny liked to do stuff in the garage when he was still mobile. Helen had slight dementia. She had cancer as well, but she never knew. She just knew she was sick.

What I took away from the article is that they lived only around five years longer than normal, those five years were miserable with exceedingly failing health, and were it not for the 15 hour interval separating their deaths, probably too mundane a story even for the local newspaper. Old couple are very attached to each other, then they die. So what. That's smack in the middle of normal. Oh? Just 15 hours apart?  Who'd a thunk it?
 
2014-04-19 05:25:42 PM
There was an article not too many days ago where scientists had discovered that those who suffer a 'broken heart' from a failed relationship went through biochemical changes in the body that mirrored 'withdrawal' effects as if they were addicts trying to kick something cold-turkey.

So, if you're an addict that's been on the hard stuff for decades and then suddenly get cut off and suffer through withdrawal, yeah, I can see how that would kill you pretty quick.

Ive spoken to a doctor. He says you suffer from a heart condition. More specifically, a lack of one.

I expect that my wife will outlive me by twenty years for several reasons. That's fine by me. She only loves me. I'm not worth a damn without her and don't want to face the prospect.

///People think I'm joking when I talk about saving her retirement money. I doubt I'll see retirement but I want to make sure she can travel and be comfortable.

Lost my wife last April 14th, I fight a broken heart everyday. God Bless them

This happened to my great aunt & uncle - married for 55 years, died within 3 days of each other.
 
2014-04-19 05:46:24 PM
Who cares? I'm still alive and I don't help anyone!

Proving once again that parents who prevent their teenage daughter from moving in with her 21-yr old 'soulmate' is cruel and unusual punishment.

AND YET if it were two men, or two women, who had lived, loved and died that way, it would be illegal, yucky, unacceptable, an abomination before someone's conception of "the Lord" and an unfit example for impressionable children, according to a wide swath of otherwise "respectable" Americans.

Happy to not be going to church tomorrow.

And if you bury them next to each other an angel will plant a red fern in between them or something.
 
2014-04-19 06:16:33 PM
Yeah, this is sweet, but I do think this is for older generations. Younger generations of women are taught to love money, not others. It's why we have high divorce rates, poorly raised children, and a me-first mentality. Women, in short, are Republicans. They hate men, families. They hate Americans and our country. They're anti-Christian.

But I'm glad these two got to die within hours of each other. Kind of sweet.

It's not a matter of having no heart. "To love and to cherish, till death us do part."


Compare that with Chris Rock commenting on various young men who think they're heroes for being completely within normal expectations.


"I take care of my kids"- YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO DO THAT, YOU DUMBASS
"I've never been to jail"- WHAT YOU WANT, A COOKIE?

Where the fark did this come from? This is why they don't like you. That, and the speedos. Definitely don't like the speedos.

Good luck finding someone to love you enough for a 70 year marriage.  I imagine most of your relationships end with the phrase "I left the cash on the dresser.  Now get out."

Couple years ago my mother died 8 days after her husband of 74 years, and my father, fell asleep in his chair watching a ball game and never came back. They were buried together on the same day. Too bad he didn't get to see his beloved Red Sox win it all again last year.

Broken hearts are fatal.
