Now answer me this:

/flame suit ON!!/

Does it really matter that damn much who gets to call themselves "President"? Why in the world should we suffer all the turmoil?

Just sayin...

Yes it does matter but still a tear jerker of a story. Been married 26 years myself.

This couple is very lucky. If both my wife and I could die at the exact same time, that would be incredible. Then neither one of us would have to morn and be miserable for the rest of the life.

Beautiful story. Describes the unique love between a man and a woman as God intended it to be.

Exactly.

I had it for 12 years, but she is gone now.

Sad. The world would be a better place if she was here and I was the one who passed...

They say “Once in a lifetime...” and many don’t even get that, so I should just be happy about it I guess.

I grew up in Sioux Center, Ia and knew that couple and their children. They were strong, faithful Christians. My daughter was a nurse in that hospital and I can understand the compassion they had when they put those beds together.
